Jakarta: President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has delivered Christmas greetings to Christian communities via his social media accounts.

"For Christians across Indonesia, I wish you a Merry Christmas. Religious diversity in Indonesia is a blessing for all of us," said the PDIP politician on his twitter account.

In various occasions, Jokowi has encouraged Indonesian citizens to avoid horizontal conflicts. Moreover, he has requested Indonesian religious leaders to promote democratic values.
 
According to him, ethnic, religion and language differences are a blessing for the nation. Therefore, these differences should be viewed as a strength.

"Diversity is a blessing for all of us. May peace and salvation always be with us, in the world and in this country," said the former Jakarta governor on his Facebook account.
