font size    

President of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said here Saturday that the Chinese Indonesians are an inalienable part of Indonesian nationality and have equal rights with other Indonesian citizens.

In a speech delivered at a Lunar New Year ceremony organized by the Confucian High Council, Susilo expressed his greetings to all the ethnic Chinese around Indonesia.

He said, the constitution of Indonesia gives all the Indonesian people equal rights and obligations including the Chinese ethnics. The whole society should respect differences in ethnics and religions, and meanwhile abandon discrimination, unfair and distrust.

Susilo emphasized that, the Chinese Indonesians have contributed a lot to the development of Indonesia not only in public service but also in private sectors, and have become an inalienable part of Indonesia nationality.
