“Mr. Prabowo has been in the United States from 15 to 19 October,” Dahnil said in a written statement on Saturday.
He explained that Prabowo would discuss several collaborations between the two countries in the defense sector that had been in place for a long time.
While in the US, Prabowo will not only meet Defense Minister Mark Esper, but will also meet with a number of officials in President Donald Trump’s administration.
