JAKARTA (THE JAKARTA POST/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – In an apparent gesture to ensure business confidence, Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo has reiterated his commitment to fight terrorism as he voiced support for reviving a special military unit.

Speaking alongside his Cabinet ministers during a breaking-the-fast event with businessmen on Friday (May 18) evening, Mr Joko expressed resentment towards a “vile terrorist ideology” that had forced families and children to become perpetrators, referring to recent terror attacks in Surabaya and Sidoarjo, East Java.

“The government and the House of Representatives are bending over backwards to ensure that the terrorism bill is completed,” he said in his speech.
