Jakarta: Indonesia's President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo received Afghanistan's High Peace Council head Mohammad Khalili at Bogor Palace in Bogor, West Java on Tuesday, November 21, 2017.

"He will meet with Nahdlatul Ulama, Muhammadiyah, Islamic scholars and Islamic boarding school leaders in the afternoon. He will study the inter-religious tolerance in the country," Jokowi said.

According to the PDIP politician, Indonesia is committed to become a mediator to resolve the ongoing Afghan crisis. Furthermore, it is ready to gather religious leaders to formulate the most suitable conflict resolution strategies.

"First, Indonesia is considered as a moderate country. Secondly, it is considered as a neutral country," he said.

"We will invite Afghan, Taliban, Pakistani and Indonesian ulamas. We will help our Afghan brothers," Jokowi said.
