Minister of Youth and Sports (Menpora) Dito Ariotedjo followed up on Bali Governor I Wayan Koster’s rejection of Israeli athletes at the ANOC World Beach Games 2023 in Bali.

He stated that he would attempt to meet with Governor Bali I Wayan Koster this week.

“I just found out through the media, and communication regarding the world beach games will continue to be intensified. What’s certain is that I will officially speak to Ms. Minister of Foreign Affairs [Retno Marsudi] about this matter,” said Dito.

“For now, the solution is more intense communication. We will schedule a meeting with Koster this week. We will pursue it this week,” continued the Menpora at the Ministry of Youth and Sports office, Jakarta, on Thursday (6/4).

Governor I Wayan Koster officially rejected the presence of Israeli athletes in Bali during the World Beach Games 2023 which is scheduled to take place from August 5th to 12th.

Koster’s reason for rejecting Israeli athletes is based on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Regulation (Permenlu) Number 3 of 2019 concerning General Guidelines for Foreign Affairs Relationships.

Menpora also refused to speculate that Governor I Wayan Koster’s rejection of Israel’s presence was an order from the PDIP as Koster’s party.
