President Moon to meet special envoy of Indonesian president

SEOUL, July 27 (Yonhap) -- President Moon Jae-in was set to meet with a special envoy of his Indonesian counterpart Joko Widodo on Friday.

In the meeting, to be held at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae, Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi was widely expected to deliver a personal invitation from the Indonesian president for Moon to visit his country during the upcoming Asian Games, slated to begin Aug. 18.

Marsudi arrived here Thursday.

In an earlier meeting with her South Korean counterpart, Kang Kyung-wha, Marsudi insisted the quadrennial sport event will also be a special occasion for South Korea and North Korea as the two Koreas have agreed to field joint teams in at least three events, including women's basketball.

If Moon visits Indonesia for the Asian Games, it will be his second trip to the Southeast Asian nation, following his three-day state visit to Jakarta in November.
