font size    

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has confirmed his government's readiness to sign the agreement on Transboundary Haze Pollution involving member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, a spokesman said Thursday.

"Indonesia will ratify the agreement and seek comprehensive solution to end the haze problems," presidential spokesman Dino Patti Djalal told reporters here.

Susilo conveyed the message to Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong during a phone conversation earlier in the day, he said.

During the conversation, the president again expressed apology for the inconvenience and other problems in Singapore and Malaysia resulting from Indonesian forest fires, he said.

The president said the meeting of ministers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Brunei on Friday is expected to bring about a significant outcome to solve the problem.
