Obama in Indonesia11 Nov 2010
He said, “I came back as a friend and as president of United States”. Obama addressed many things about Indonesia in the regional and the global level. Indonesia is an example of “unity in diversity”. His 4 years childhood in Indonesia helped him appreciate the common humanity of all people.
He expected Indonesia’s involvement in the global level, specifically in democracy and anti-corruption. He embraced the improvement in cooperation between Indonesia and US. He ended his speech with his major address to the Muslim world. The best phrase that I always like from him is, “a more perfect union“ ^^.
