Chinese Ambassador to Indonesia Xie Feng congratulated the launching of the accounts, saying the move means the opening of a "window online" for members of the Indonesian community to understand China's development and will serve as a platform for Chinese and Indonesians to listen to each other's voice.

"The China-Indonesia comprehensive strategic partnership is now in the best shape in history and the two peoples have strong and urgent intention to intensify mutual communication and exchanges," the ambassador added.
