UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein today closed at a press conference his official visits to Indonesia from 5 to 7 February.

"There are some dark clouds on the horizon but I am encouraged by the positive momentum and hope the common sense and strong tradition of tolerance of the Indonesian people will prevail over populism and political opportunism," Zeid said.
