Saudi crown prince to visit Indonesia next week

JAKARTA, Indonesia will host Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for a state visit next week, Jakarta said, part of an Asian tour that includes stops in Pakistan, India and

Malaysia.

His two-day visit to the world's biggest Muslim majority country kicks off

Monday, the prince's second official visit to the archipelago, but Jakarta

supplied few details about his itinerary.

He will arrive in Indonesia on February 18, and meet the president on

February 19, presidential spokesman Johan Budi said.

The crown prince is scheduled to visit Pakistan and Malaysia before

arriving in Indonesia and then he heads to India.

Salman last visited Indonesia with his father King Salman in 2017 as part

of an Asian tour seeking investment opportunities.

At that time, Jakarta and Riyadh signed a range of agreements from trade

and aviation to boosting cooperation in science, health and fighting crime.

They also inked an agreement involving state-owned energy firms Aramco and Indonesia's Pertamina to expand a multi-billion-dollar oil refinery in the Southeast Asian nation.
