    SBY and Jokowi have a Tête-à-Tête

    Tobapos -- President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono held a tête-à-tête with President-elect Joko Widodo, better known as Jokowi, here Wednesday night but it was not known what they discussed.

    "The agenda of their meeting is only known to t two of them because it was merely a tête-à-tête," Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Minister Djoko Suyanto said here on Wednesday evening.

    He said the only a little possibility the two sides have is to discuss technical matters such as fuel subsidy or state budget.

    "I do not think they will discuss operational matters? I think the meeting will depend on what Jokowi wants to talk during their encounter," he said, adding that on a number of occasions, incumbent President Yudhoyono has make clear his readiness to hear what the President-elect has to say.

    President Yudhyono said he will hear more from Jokowi at the meeting in the Indonesian resort island of Bali on Wednesday evening.

    "I will hear more about any issue that Pak (Mr) Jokowi wishes to speak or ask me or know about governance and government policies," he told journalists before leaving Dili, Timor Leste's capital, for Bali on Wednesday.

    President Yudhoyono said he will express his thoughts and views about what is required to run the government if he was asked to do so during subsequent meetings with Jokowi.

    The president stated that he will do that as he did not want to be accused of annoying the new government by providing unsolicited inputs or views.

    "At the next meeting, I will express my views on anything he requires to run his government, including those related to domestic and international policies and our role in international arena, such as G20, if Pak Jokowi wants."

    "Instead, if Pak Jokowi feels that it is enough, I think it is unnecessary (to provide additional inputs and views)," President Yudhoyono remarked. (ant/adm)
