"I am also proud of the Indonesian security personnel," the head of state noted at a session on terrorism before leaders attending the US-ASEAN Summit here, Tuesday.
Jokowi was invited to be the first speaker at the special session on counterterrorism.
He acknowledged the sympathy and attention given by the United States and other ASEAN member countries following the terror attack in Jakarta on January 14, 2016.
In a relatively short period of time, the situation was brought under control, and life in Jakarta returned to normal, he pointed out.
"But, we remain vigilant against terror threats," the president added.
He emphasized the importance of moderation, peace, and tolerance during the session attended by President Barack Obama.
