November 03, 2010 (KATAKAMI / THE JAKARTA POST) — President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was welcomed by another eruption at Mount Merapi on Wednesday morning when he was about to visit a shelter site for refugees in Pakem, Sleman, Yogyakarta.

An officer at the Mt. Merapi observation post, Agus, said that the eruption occurred at around 8:20 a.m.

“It was a single eruption but quite big. The mountain spewed hot clouds which moved about five kilometers to west,” he added as quoted by Kompas.com.

Mt. Merapi, where an eruption on last Tuesday has killed 39 people so far, is still on top alert status as it still continues to erupt and spew hot clouds of ashes.

October 27, 2010 Hanoi, Vietnam (KATAKAMI / ANTARA) – Visiting Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has to cut short his working trip and return to Jakarta on Wednesday.

The president made the decision to return to Indonesia following a volcanic eruption in Central Java on Tuesday and earthquake-triggered tsunami in West Sumatra on Monday.

The president was forced to immediately return to Jakarta to monitor for himself the direct impact of the two separate natural disasters on the local people.

“President Yudhoyono has made up his mind to return to Indonesia on Wednesday,” Minister/State Secretary Sudi Silalahi told the newsmen in Hanoi, Vietnam, earlier in the day.

Sudi said the president was scheduled to directly head to Mentawai, West Sumatra, to obtain the first hand information about Monday`s powerful earthquake which was followed by a deadly tsunami.

President Yudhoyono and his entourage arrived in Hanoi on Tuesday evening for a state visit to attend the 17th Asean Summit.

The president`s party included the Chief Economic Minister Hatta Rajasa, the Minister/State Secretary Sudi Silalahi and the Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa.
Yudhoyono would start his activities in Vietnam on Tuesday by paying a state visit, which was at the invitation of Vietnamese President Nguyen Ming Triet.

The president made the state visit in connection with the 55th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Indonesia and Vietnam, which fall on December 30, 2010.

According to the presidential spokesman for foreign affairs Teuku Faizasyah, the visit would focus on increasing the cooperation in the fields of politics, law, security, economy, development, social and tourism.

But at about 7.55 on Wednesday morning, the members of the presidential entourage were asked to pack their belongings and get ready to leave the hotel.

Consequently the Indonesian head of state had to cancel a number of his agenda in the visit to Hanoi, Vietnam.(*)

June 27, 2010

TORONTO  (THENEWSTRIBUNE.COM) – President Barack Obama insists he’ll make it to Indonesia yet.

He’s twice postponed presidential trips to the country where he lived with his mother and Indonesian stepfather between age 6 and 10.

Obama held a meeting Sunday at the global economic summit in Toronto with Indonesia’s president, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. And while Obama didn’t announce a new date for the trip, Obama did say, “I am confident we are going to get there.”

Trips were set to Indonesia and Australia this year but pressing domestic matters – the health care debate in Congress and later the Gulf of Mexico oil spill – led to the delays.

The United States and Indonesia have a strong relationship, Obama said, and he looked forward to making it even stronger.

Two challenges, he said, are working to promote climate change and improving education for young people.

Yudhoyono agreed and said he was pleased by the two countries’ common interests.
