The Indonesian Foreign Ministry has denied speculation about establishing diplomatic relations between Jakarta and Tel Aviv.

Iran PressAsia: In response to rumors spread by the Israeli media, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry rejected any prospect of the country opening diplomatic channels with the Israeli regime.

Various Israeli media outlets, including Yedioth Ahronoth, announced last Monday that Indonesia and Oman are likely to be the next countries to normalize relations with Israel.

So far, under pressure from US President Donald Trump to normalize relations with Israel, the four countries of the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco have formally agreed to fully normalize diplomatic relations with Israel.

These agreements have been widely criticized in the Islamic world. 219
