Bogor, West Java. South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday (09/11) held talks with Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo at the Bogor presidential palace, south of Jakarta, and discussed infrastructure, trade and also tension on the Korean peninsula.

"I appreciate President Moon’s position that he remains open to resolving any disputes through dialogue," Jokowi told a news conference in the Dutch colonial-style palace.

Indonesia has traditionally had good relations with North Korea and maintains diplomatic ties and is one of a small number of countries with an embassy in Pyongyang.

A number of South Korean companies already have or are planning big investments in Indonesia.
