Buenos Aires, MINA – Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla (JK) scheduled to meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Prince Mohammed Bin Salman at the G-20 Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Antara News reported.

“Erdogan and Mohammed Bin Salmen are asking to meet me on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit agenda,” Kalla said, as reported by, Friday.

When asked what will be discussed with the two leaders of the country, Kalla said he would deliver the contents after meeting with them.

“Of course the conversation cannot be disclosed before speaking. Because they asked us to meet, “Kalla said through a written statement from the Vice President’s media team on Friday.

However, he predicted that the meeting will discuss the matters that can strengthen relations between each country with Indonesia.

“We have been able to predict the discussion later. But it is usually (about) how to strengthen the relations between the two countries. And bilateral issues on the two sides,” Kalla continued.

Kalla previously also stated that Indonesia would raise the issue of trade war between China and the United States (US) at the G-20 Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 30 November-1 December 2018.

Kalla said that the trade war between China and the US would be dangerous if left uninterrupted.

In addition, to raise the issue of trade war, Kalla will also hold bilateral meetings with a number of countries. But he was reluctant to disclose countries that would hold a special meeting with the Indonesian delegation.

“Yes, some countries are meeting each other. There are already those who have asked me for three countries to Indonesia. We also ask several heads of state to meet,” he ended. (T/Sj)
