Saudi Crown Prince to visit Indonesia next week

JAKARTA (AFP) – Indonesia will host Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for a state visit next week, Jakarta said yesterday, 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 next 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 told AFP.

The Crown Prince is scheduled to visit Pakistan and Malaysia before arriving in Indonesia and then he heads to India.
