Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah will make a state visit to Indonesia from tomorrow until Aug 29.

The Foreign Ministry said in a statement today said that the king would be accompanied by the Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah.

“The programmes arranged for the state visit will include a state welcoming ceremony, an audience and a state banquet hosted by Indonesian President Joko Widodo at the Bogor Presidential Palace.

“Their majesties have consented to attend a dinner with the Malaysian diaspora in Indonesia and to visit Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta,” the statement said.

The delegation will include Economic Affairs Minister Mohamed Azmin Ali, who is also the minister in attendance, and senior officials from the Foreign Ministry, Istana Negara and the Prime Minister’s Department.

Their majesties will also visit Yogyakarta and meet with the governor and ruler Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, and tour several historical sites in the city.

The visit symbolises the warm and close bilateral relations between Malaysia and Indonesia, and will contribute to further cementing the existing bond of friendship which was established 62 years ago, it said.
