A street in Abu Dhabi is named after President Joko Widodo

 A street in Abu Dhabi is named after President Joko Widodo. Also, the UAE authorities have already announced the construction of a mosque, which will be named after the Indonesian president.

President Joko Widodo Street, formerly known as Al-Maarid, is located in the city center, in an area occupied by a business district and a number of diplomatic missions. The Joko Widodo Mosque will be located directly in the diplomatic quarter.

The Indonesian Embassy in the UAE said Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan ordered the renaming of the street and the construction of a mosque in honor of President Joko Widodo in recognition of his efforts to bring the two countries closer together.

Today, the countries are not only economic partners, but also solve political issues, which allows Indonesia to take an active part in the affairs of the Middle East.

Djokovi is not the first Indonesian to be honored with his street outside Indonesia. A street in the Moroccan capital, Rabat, is named after the first president of Indonesia, Sukarno, while four cities in the Netherlands - namely, the capital Amsterdam, Utrecht, Venlo and Haarlem - have streets named after Raden Ajeng Kartini, and in honor of the first vice president of Indonesia, Mohammad Hatta also named a street in Haarlem.
