Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono intends to visit Burma, South Korea and North Korea later this year.
Presidential spokesman Dino Patti Djalal confirmed today plans for the president to visit military-ruled Burma but said exact dates have not been determined. The foreign ministry initially indicated the trip to Burma would be later this month.
Meanwhile, an Indonesian envoy to the two Koreas, Nana Sutresna, says the Korean trip will take place in April. It is not clear if Mr. Yudhoyono plans to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-il.
Sutresna visited North Korea last week and said Mr. Kim accepted in principle a visit to Jakarta, but details still have to be discussed.
Indonesia has a long-standing relationship with Pyongyang. Indonesia's first president, Sukarno, was a close friend of Mr. Kim's late father, Kim il-sung.
