¶1.  On August 1 Ambassador Hume, along with the new
Ambassadors from Libya, Spain, Sri Lanka, and Argentina,
presented credentials to President Yudhoyono.  In the joint
audience following the ceremony President Yudhoyono described
his goals to be the strengthening of democracy in Indonesia,
the expansion of the economy for the benefit of all
Indonesians, and a positive international role for Indonesia.
 He cited the benefits of cooperation on anti-terrorism, and
he spoke about Indonesia,s desire to play a constructive
role on environmental issues, including the hosting of the
COP-13 Climate Change conference in Bali this December.  His
visit to New York for the UN General Assembly, September
24-25, would include a meeting on environmental issues.
 
¶2.  President Yudhoyono expressed concern that present
difficulties in some parts of the world, such as Iraq, not be
used to stoke religious antagonisms or to justify
intolerance.  He had presided over Iraq,s victory in the
Asian Soccer tournament in Jakarta a few days earlier, and he
hoped that the situation in Iraq was now changing for the
better.  Finally, he urged the new ambassadors to meet not
only with government officials but also with leaders of civil
society and Indonesian businessmen.  Indonesia was undergoing
significant change, and leaders outside the government were
making important contributions.
 
¶3.  In comments addressed to Ambassador Hume, Yudhoyono said
he appreciated Indonesia,s growing partnership with the
United States and looked forward to meeting President Bush
during the APEC Summit in Sydney.   He thanked the Ambassador
for his assistance in resolving the commercial dispute
between Nike and one of its local suppliers (reftel).  Hume
responded that the United States government wanted to build a
stronger relationship with Indonesia and shared the goal of a
well-governed, democratic Indonesia able to provide
opportunities for all of its citizens.
