Indonesia's peace role: INDONESIA will become a substantial player in Middle East politics by being invited to the Annapolis conference to be convened by the US this month. (Greg Sheridan, November 17, 2007, The Australian)

In an exclusive interview with The Weekend Australian, Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had requested Indonesia participate at the conference when he visited Jakarta recently.

"I told him that I would always be willing to be helpful to the peace process," Dr Yudhoyono said.
