SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Â South Korean President Moon Jae-in has asked his Indonesian counterpart to support efforts to achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Indonesia has historical ties with North Korea. Indonesia's first president, Sukarno, was a friend of late North Korean leader Kim Il Sung, the grandfather of current ruler Kim Jong Un. Sukarno's daughter, Megawati Sukarnoputri, met Kim Jong Un's dictator father, Kim Jong Il, in 2002 when she served as president.
Moon's office says he met with visiting Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on Monday and thanked him for assisting inter-Korean cooperation during the recent Asian Games in Indonesia.
The two Koreas marched together in the opening and closing ceremonies and fielded joint teams in some events.
