"We are very much thinking of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Particularly for the friends and family of those who have lost their lives," said the UK Foreign Secretary in a joint press statement after the Indonesia-UK Partnership Forum.
On Wednesday morning, Indonesia and the UK held their third Partnership Forum bilateral talks in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia.
According to UK's top diplomat, the partnership between Indonesia and the UK is a partnership based on respect and shared interests and objectives.
"I listened very carefully to the concerns of our Indonesian friends on palm oil and commodities, and we are absolutely committed through the working group we have set up to find the right solutions to some of those issues," he stated.
On Thursday, Raab will join the second UK-ASEAN ministerial dialogue – where he will continue to discuss a range of issues, including the UK’s application for Dialogue Partner status of ASEAN.
"All of this underlines the British commitment to the Indo-Pacific – and our ambition for an even stronger relationship with Indonesia, which I think is reflected not just in the bilateral issues we have discussed – but the global issues we have discussed – from the Middle East Peace Process to Myanmar that we are collaborating I think very effectively on," he stated.
