Inaugurating of Ahmed Soekarno Street in Berges du Lac

Zuhairi Al-Masrawy, Ambassador of Indonesia to Tunisia, inaugurated Indonesian leader Ahmed Soekarno Street on Thursday morning in the presence of several regional officials of the Tunis Governorate, municipalities, media representatives, members of the Indonesian community and students.

The Ambassador highlighted the historical, political and cultural significance of this inauguration, reviewing the strong ties between the two brotherly countries since the first visit of Habib Bourguiba during the national liberation movement to Indonesia in 1951, followed by the opening of Tunisia’s office in Jakarta in 1952, making Indonesia the first country to raise the Tunisian flag before its independence.

Ambassador Al-Masrawypointed out that the inauguration of the road in the name of the leader Ahmad Sukarno is a turning point to strengthen the existing cooperation between the two countries announcing that a team of Indonesian experts will come to Tunisia late this year within the framework of bilateral scientific and technological cooperation, to apply rainfall techniques and cloud injection scientifically in our country to increase the density of agricultural lands and fill the dams.

For his part, Secretary General in charge of the Tunis Municipality, Kamel Louhichi, indicated that the inauguration of a street named after the leader Ahmed Soekarno in Tunis carries a deep symbolic meaning that translates the strength of relations between the two countries and peoples, including the common values that honour their leaders who fought against colonialism to regain national sovereignty.

Pancasila: The five pillars on which modern Indonesia was built

The inauguration day coincides with the anniversary of the birth of the late Indonesian leader Ahmed Soekarno on 6 June 1901.

Soekarno is considered the father of modern Indonesia, the builder of its unity and the founder of the five pillars of the republic, or Pancasila.  These are faith in God, humanism, Indonesian patriotism, consensual consultation, and social justice.

Today, Pancasila is a way of life for all Indonesians and the basis of successive government policies since 1945.
