Thursday 12 January 2012
Visiting U.S. Undersecretary of State for Public Affairs Judith McHale said she would help find a way for the U.S. government to provide assistance for the job of removing Mount Merapi ash layer from Borobudur temple in Central Java. McHale commended the efforts Indonesia has made so far with the help of University of Indonesia (UI) volunteers. "One of the most interesting things in witnessing this process is that I get to meet the University of Indonesia volunteers who are helping to clean up the temple`s reliefs," the U.S. official said. She said it was a great moment for her to be visiting one of the world`s precious cultural heritages. "The temple is a symbol of Indonesia`s cultural diversity," said McHale who also took the opportunity to visit the Karmawibhangga Museum located near the temple.
