NEW YORK – U.S. President Barack Obama says he’s going to Indonesia in November or late this fall. This statement was delivered Obama in a speech in front of the General Assembly of the United Nations, yesterday, when explaining the success of democracy in the world.

According to Obama, the development of democracy in the world not because American dictates, but because every citizen to sue. U.S. President also said that democracy always reflects the uniqueness of a nation.

That’s when Obama says will visit India in late autumn, the country with a population of more than 1 billion who managed to uphold democracy. “I will proceed to Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world that binds thousands of islands through a representative governance and civil society,” Obama said in his speech. In the same way, President Obama will attend G-20 summit in South Korea, and Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum in Japan.

President of the United States had long planned to visit Indonesia, a country that had become his home when a child. But this plan be delayed up to two times, namely in May and June. The trip is delayed, first because the pressure to pass health care legislation in the U.S. Congress, and then the second because of the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa welcome and will prepare a plan that Obama’s visit. But, he did not want to comment on whether Obama’s statement about the trip was triggered by ketidakhadirian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in the US-ASEAN Summit in New York on 24 September. “Just ask the United States alone,” Marty said with a smile.
