Condolence Message of AJA on the earthquake in Indonesia


Dear His Excellency Mr. Joko Widodo

I was deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life and destruction to property caused by the devastating earthquake in the Aceh province of Indonesia on 7th December, 2016.

I deeply share the pain of Indonesian people and would like to announce that Asia Journalist Association (AJA) stands in support and solidarity with the Government in this catastrophic disaster.

I send my heartfelt condolences to President Mr. Joko Widodo and the people of Indonesia. I pray for the quick rescue of those still under rubble and patience for those who lost loved ones.

My hope is that Indonesia’s friends and allies will not leave this country alone during this difficult time and will offer their full support.

I wish ease to the rescue workers and pray for their strength and perseverance.


Lee Sang-ki,

Founder President of AJA
