FOREWORDMINISTER

DEFENCE,REPUBLIC
OF
INDONESIA
Assalamu'alaikum
Warahmatullahi
Wabarakatuh.
Let
us
praise
God
Almighty,
for the
nation
of In-
donesia never ceases
to
receive
His
blessings, guid-ance, strength
and
protection
in
striving
to
achieve
the
nation's goals.
Amidst
globalization
and an
ever changing stra-
tegic
environment, strive
of the
Indonesian nation
in
facing
security issues poses implications
to the
life
of the
nation.
In
order
to
anticipate such secu-rity issues,
the
state
has
administer
the
defence function,
in
principle aimed
at
upholding sovereignty, maintaining territorial integrity
of the
Republic
of
Indonesia, and
protecting
the
nation's safety
from
all
threats, both
from
external
and
internal sources.
In
order
to
provide direction
and a
guideline
for
administering
the de-
fence function,
a set of
formulated policies
are
required. Inspired
by
such
a
concept,
the
government
of the
Republic
of
Indonesia publishes
the
"White
Paper
of
Defence" which fundamentally incorporates stated defence poli-
cies
in
carrying
out
defence functions,
in the
future.The
White paper
of
Defence
of the
Republic
of
Indonesia
is
title:
"INDO-
NESIA
:
Defending
The
Country Entering
the
21
st
Century".
The
title impliesthat members
of the
Indonesian nation
are
willing
to
sacrifice their lives
and
material possessions
to
defend their country.
The
meaning gains significance
as
we
enter
the
21
st
century,
as the
threats
and
challenges faced
by
Indone-
sia
have
not
declined.
Defence
policies
are
formulated based
on
national
interests
and
goals,
in
consideration
of the
development
of
national strategic contexts
and
objec-
•"«&

tive conditions. For
that
reason defence policies are constantly under review
and
evaluation,
and
necessary revisions
are
made
to
adapt
to the
latest
de-
velopment. However, such revisions should always
be
based
on the
under-standing and principles of defence adopted by the Indonesian nation based
on
Pancasila
and The
1945 Constitution.
With
the
publication
of the
White Paper,
it is
expected
that
the
Republic
of
Indonesian
(RI)
government apparatus
and the
people
of
Indonesia
will
be
able
to
betterunderstand
defence
policies.
The
Paper
is
also
essential
for
Indonesia
in
maintaining
international
co-
operation. Transparency,
in
particular pertaining defence policies,
is one of
the
efforts made
to
establish mutual trust with other nations.
In
conclusion,
as the
minister
and on the
behalf
of all
members
of the RIMinistry of
Defence
I
would like
to
express
my
gratefulness
to God
Almighty,
for
His
guidance
and His
light have
led us to the
successful publication
of the
White
Paper as previously planned.
I
would also like
to
express
my
appreciation
and
gratitude
to all
parties
who
participated
in
preparing this
Defence
White Paper.
I am
certain thatsuch participations
are
valuable contributions
to our
beloved country
and
Nation
of
Indonesia.
May
God
Almighty endows
His
blessings
to the
people
of
Indonesia.
