    PM's Statement prior to his departure to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore

    Following is the text of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi's departure statement prior to his visit to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

    "I will be visiting Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore on 29 May – 2 June 2018. India has a robust strategic partnership with all the three countries.

    On 29 May, I will be in Jakarta on the invitation of Indonesian Presiden Joko Widodo. This is my first visit to Indonesia as Prime Minister. I am looking forward to my discussions with President Widodo on 30 May, as also to our joint interaction with the India-Indonesia CEOs Forum. I will also address the Indian Community in Indonesia.

    India and Indonesia enjoy strong and friendly ties and share deep historical and civilizational linkages. Both countries are multi ethnic, multi religious, plural and open societies. I am confident that my visit to Indonesia will create greater synergy between Asia’s two largest democracies and further elevate our bilateral ties.

    On 31 May, on my way to Singapore, I will make a brief halt in Malaysia to congratulate the new Malaysian leadership. I look forward to meet Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.

    In Singapore I will be focusing on enhancing India-Singapore partnership in areas of Fintech, skill development, urban planning and artificial intelligence. Singapore entities have become major partners with India in areas like urban development, planning, smart cities and infrastructure development. My visit in Singapore presents an opportunity for both countries to engage further.

    On 31 May, I will visit the India-Singapore enterprise and innovation exhibition. I will also address a business and community event followed by a roundtable meeting with select top CEOs of Singapore to discuss business and investment opportunities.

    On 1 June, I will call on Singapore President Halimah Yacob. I will also hold delegation level talks with Singapore Prime Minister Lee, and am looking forward to my visit to the Nanyang Technological University where I would interact with young students.

    That evening, I will deliver the keynote address at Shangri-La Dialogue. This will be the first time that an Indian Prime Minister would deliver this address. It would be an opportunity to articulate India’s point of view on regional security issues and maintenance of peace and stability in the region.

    On 2 June, I will unveil a plaque at Clifford Pier, where Gandhiji’s ashes were immersed in sea on 27 March 1948. I would also visit some places of worship that have civilizational linkages with India.

    The last element of my programme would be a visit to the Changi Naval Base in Singapore where I will visit the Indian Naval Ship INS Satpura and interact with officers and sailors of the Indian Navy and Royal Singapore Navy.

    I am confident that my visit to Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore will provide a further boost to our Act East Policy and enhance our relations and engagements with all the three countries."

    Text of PM’s Press Statement during his visit to Indonesia

    Your Excellency
    President जोको विदोडो,
    Distinguished delegates,
    Members of the Media,
    सेलामत सियांग


    नमस्कार!

    इस महान एवं सुंदर देश की यह मेरी पहली यात्रा है। मैं सबसे पहले इस यात्रा का शानदार प्रबंध करने एवं गर्मजोशी के साथ मेरा आतिथ्य-सत्कार करने के लिए राष्ट्रपति विदोडो के प्रति आभार व्यक्त करता हूँ। इंडोनेशिया की विवधिता दर्शाते हुए , नागरिको और छोटे छोटे बच्चो ने जेसे राष्ट्रीय पोशाको में मेरा स्वागत किया, उसने खासतोर पर मेरे मन को छू लिया. राष्ट्रपति महोदय की दूरदर्शिता के लिए उनके Visionary नेतृत्व के लिए तथा हमारी भागीदारी को और मज़बूत बनाने के लिए उनकी व्यक्तिगत प्रतिबद्धता के प्रति मेरे मन में गहरा आदर है।

    Friends,

    हाल में हुए आतंकी हमलों में इंडोनेशिया के निर्दोष लोगों के मारे जाने का मुझे गहरा दुःख है। भारत इस प्रकार के हमलों की कड़ी निंदा करता है। इस मुश्किल समय में भारत इंडोनेशिया के साथ मज़बूती से खड़ा है। इस प्रकार की त्रासद घटनाएं यह संदेश देती है कि आतंकवाद से लड़ने के लिए विश्व स्तर पर मिल-जुल कर किए जा रहे प्रयासों में और अधिक गति लाने की आवश्यकता है।

    Friends,

    इंडोनेशिया की पंचशील philosophy, इंडोनेशिया के लोगों के विवेक और दूरदर्शिता का जीवंत प्रमाण है।dरमाण है। इसमें धार्मिक विश्वासों के साथ सांस्कृतिक परंपराओं का भी निर्बाध एकीकरण किया गया है। सामुद्रिक पड़ोसियों एवं सामरिक साझेदारों के रूप में हमारी चिन्ताएं एक जैसी हैं। सामुद्रिक मार्गों की सुरक्षा एवं संरक्षा सुनिश्चित करना हमारा कर्तव्य है। यह हमारे आर्थिक हितों की रक्षा के लिए भी आवश्यक है। आज के बदलते हुए Indo-Pacific क्षेत्र में हमारी विशेष geo-strategic location है। हम एक जैसी विकास एवं पर्यावरणीय चुनौतियों का सामना कर रहे हैं। Indo-Pacific क्षेतॉयोगियों के रूप में, एक दूसरे की प्रगति एवं संपन्नता में हमारे साझा हित हैं। और इसलिए, हमने Indo-Pacific क्षेत्र के लिए साझे Vision और सिद्धांतों पर सहमति की है। Friends, भारत की Act East Policy के साथ ''सागर'' – Security and Growth for All in the Region – का हमारा Vision, राष्ट्रपति विदोडो की Maritime Fulcrum Policy के साथ मेल करता है। December 2016 में राष्ट्रपति विदोडो की भारत यात्रा के समय हमने एक roadmap तैयार किया था। आज हमारी चर्चा में हमने उसके कार्यान्वयन पर हुई प्रगति का आकलन किया। आज हमारे बीच हुए समझौतों से हमारे द्विपक्षीय संबंधों को और बेहतर बनाने में सहायता मिलेगी। मुझे प्रसन्नता है कि हमने अपनी साझेदारी को Comprehnsive Strategic Partnership के रूप में upgrade करने का निर्णय लिया है। हम वर्ष 2025 तक द्विपक्षीय व्यापार को 50 बिलियन डॉलर के स्तर तक ले जाने के लिए अपने प्रयास दोगुने करेंगे। और इन प्रयासों में सहायता के लिए मैं हमारे CEO Forum के सकारात्मक योगदान का भी अभिनंदन करता हूँ।

    Friends,

    हम दोनों देशों के बीच सहस्त्राब्दियों से मजबूत सांस्कृतिक संबंध है। इनकी एक झलक इस वर्ष हमारे गणतंत्र दिवस पर आयोजित parade में भी देखने को मिली थी। इस वर्ष की parade में आसियान-भारत संबंधों की झाँकी में भारत के ओड़िशा राज्य के त्यौहार "बाली जात्रा” को दर्शाया गया था। प्रतिवर्ष मनाया जाने वाला यह त्यौहार हमारे हज़ारों वर्ष पुराने सांस्कृतिक संबंधों के आज भी जीवंत होने का उदाहरण है। अगले वर्ष 2019 में हम अपने राजनयिक संबंधों की स्थापना की 70वीं वर्षगांठ मनाएंगे। इस दौरान दोनों देशों में बहुत से समारोह आयोजित किए जाएंगे। बहुत बड़ी संख्या में भारतीय पर्यटक इंडोनेशिया आते हैं, विशेष रूप से बाली में। उत्तराखंड एवं बाली को Twin करने से इस आदान-प्रदान में और बढ़ोतरी होगी। दोनों देशों में अधिकांश आबादी युवा है। इन युवाओं के सपनों को साकार करने के लिए और उनके लिए रोज़गार के अवसर उत्पन्न करने हेतु, हम शिक्षा तथा कौशल विकास के क्षेत्र में एक-दूसरे से सीख सकते हैं। हमनें शिक्षा तथा विज्ञान एवं प्रौद्योगिकी में सहयोग बढ़ाने पर सहमति जताई है। हम भारत के IT सेवा क्षेत्र में सहयोग बढ़ाने एवं इसे विस्तार देने के लिए इंडोनेशिया के नेतृत्व के विचारों का स्वागत करेंगे। यह दोनों देशों के लिए लाभकारी भागीदारी रहेगी।

    Friends,

    India-ASEAN partnership एक ऐसी शक्ति है जो Indo- Pacific क्षेत्र में तथा उससे परे भी शांति और साझा उन्नति के लिए है। हम ASEAN में इंडोनेशिया की सकारात्मक भूमिका को महत्व देते हैं। साथ ही, व्यापक क्षेत्रीय सहयोग एवं एकीकरण के लिए इस Association के प्रयास भी एक उदाहरण और प्रेरणा है। मैंने ASEAN में भारत की Strategic Partnership को विकसित करने में इंडोनेशिया के पुरज़ोर समर्थन के लिए President विदोडो के समक्ष हमारा आभार व्यक्त किया है। मैं अगस्त में 18वें एशियाई खेलों की मेजबानी के लिए इंडोनेशिया को अपनी शुभकामनाएं देता हूँ। मुझे विश्वास है कि यह बहुत ही शानदार एवं ऐतिहासिक आयोजन होगा। और मैं रमजान के इस पवित्र महीने में, भारत के सवा सौ करोड़ लोगों की ओर से इंडोनेशिया के सभी लोगों की समृद्धि, उत्तम स्वास्थ्य एवं सफलता की कामना करता हूँ और उन्हें आगामी ईद-उल-फित्र के त्योहार की बधाई देता हूँ।

    बहुत-बहुत धन्यवाद।
    तरीमा कासि बन्याक।

    PM addresses Indian Community in Jakarta

    The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today addressed the Indian community in Jakarta.
    He spoke of the special ties between India and Indonesia, and recalled the Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi earlier this year, where leaders from 10 ASEAN nations, including Indonesia, were present. He noted that it is no coincidence that in 1950, the President of Indonesia had been the Chief Guest at the Republic Day Parade in New Delhi.

    He said the members of the Indian diaspora in Indonesia are proud citizens of Indonesia, but wish to remain connected with their Indian roots as well.

    The Prime Minister said that in the last four years, India has witnessed unparalleled transformation. In this context, he spoke of FDI, openness of the Indian economy, ease of doing business, and competitiveness of the Indian economy.

    He said both countries are proud of their democratic ethos and diversity. He gave examples such as the Bali-Jatra, and similarities in cuisine and language to highlight the close cultural links between the two countries. He noted that earlier today, he and President Widodo had jointly inaugurated the Kite Exhibition, which included themes from the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.

    Talking about developments in India, he said that the Union Government is creating systems that are development-friendly and corruption-free. He said that going ahead from “Ease of Doing Business,” the focus is now on “Ease of Living.” Our processes are transparent and sensitive, he added. He gave an account of the dramatic developments that have taken place in a number of areas of infrastructure development. He spoke of India’s vibrant start-up ecosystem, and the International Solar Alliance.
    Both India and Indonesia have a sensitive outlook when it comes to helping those in need, the Prime Minister asserted. He said that India does not see the colour of anyone’s passport, and helps all fellow humans who require any assistance. He said India and Indonesia do not just rhyme in their names, but share a common rhythm in their culture, traditions, and democratic values.

    The Prime Minister invited the diaspora to visit India to witness first-hand, the changes taking place here.

    A Delhi court on Wednesday sought a reply from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on an anticipatory bail application filed by former Union Minister P. Chidambaram in the Aircel-Maxis case.

    In his application filed through advocate P.K. Dubey, Mr. Chidambaram urged the court to "grant protection of anticipatory bail and direct that the applicant/accused is released on bail in the event of his arrest in relation to the enforcement case investigation report (ECIR) /05/DZ/2012 registered by the respondent (ED) relating to Aircel-Maxis case..."

    All the evidence in in the case appeared to be documentary in nature that were already in the possession of the ED and the CBI. Further, the documentary evidence was in the form of files in the Ministry of Finance, which are currently in safe and secure possession of the Centre. As such, there arises no question of the applicant being able to tamper with the documentary evidence, Also, no recovery was to be made from Mr. Chidambaram, the bail application said.

    The applicant undertakes to abide by any condition, which may be imposed by the court as a condition of granting bail, the application said.

    Mr. Modi, who arrived here on Thursday on the second leg of his three-nation tour, met 92-year-old Mr. Mahathir in his office at Perdana Putra Complex, Putrajaya.

    “Glad to have met Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. I thank him for the warm welcome. We had productive discussions on further cementing India-Malaysia ties,” Mr. Modi tweeted in both Malay and English.

    The two leaders discussed ways to boost economic and cultural relations between India and Malaysia.

    Mr. Modi is among the first world leaders to meet Mr. Mahathir, who became the world’s oldest elected leader when his opposition alliance registered a stunning victory over the Barisan Nasional coalition, which had ruled Malaysia since 1957. Mr. Mahathir was sworn in as Malaysia’s Prime Minister on May 10.

    Mr. Modi congratulated Mr. Mahathir on assuming the post of Prime Minister of Malaysia. Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Wan Azizah was at the airport to see off Mr. Modi.

    External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the two leaders had a productive exchange of views on strengthening the strategic partnership.

    Mr. Modi congratulated Mr. Mahathir on assuming the post of Prime Minister of Malaysia, he added.

    Malaysia and India have close ties with culture and history as well as in various key areas, particularly infrastructure development, education, tourism and defense.

    India is Malaysia’s largest trading partner in South Asia with total turnover of RM 61.43 billion ($15.44 billion) in 2017.

    Earlier, the Prime Minister’s Office said that Mr. Modi will be discussing aspects relating to India-Malaysia cooperation with Mahathir. “Malaysia is a strategic partner and a priority country in our Act East Policy,” Mr. Kumar said.

    Mr. Modi had announced in New Delhi that on his way to Singapore, he will make a brief halt in Malaysia to meet Mr. Mahathir and congratulate the new Malaysian leadership.

    This is the first meeting between the two leaders. Mr. Modi last visited Malaysia in Novembver 2015.
