Early on Thursday morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew into Jakarta for the 20th ASEAN-India Summit and the 18th East Asia Summit.

At Jakarta International Airport, the Prime Minister received a formal greeting. I. Gusti Ayu Bintang Darmawati, Minister for Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection, welcomed PM Modi.

The Indonesian cultural dance was presented at the airport.

Happy morning. At the airport in Jakarta, we have just arrived. Narendra Modi, the prime minister, is about to get off the aircraft. Arindam Bagchi, the official spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), posted a video of Prime Minister Modi’s arrival on his social media account, writing, “He’s been given a warm ceremonial welcome here at Jakarta Airport.”

“Even though it’s extremely early in the morning, he has a busy agenda right now. A few hours later, he leaves for the summit between India and ASEAN before moving on to the East Asia summit. There are significant commitments. These two things involve. After that, he will return here and board an aircraft for New Delhi. So we only spent a very brief time in Jakarta, but we anticipate a very busy day. The fact that the Prime Minister came here despite having a full schedule for the G 20, which officially begins on Friday evening, only serves to highlight how much emphasis you placed on this visit. As information on this visit develops, we’ll keep you informed, he added.

Meanwhile, S Jaishankar, the minister of external affairs, arrived at Jakarta’s Ritz-Carlton hotel to meet with members of the Indian diaspora.

The Indian community was ecstatic to greet Prime Minister Modi.

The Indian diaspora sang “Modi, Modi,” “Humara Neta Kaisa Ho, Narendra Modiji Jaisa Ho,” as they waited outside the hotel. How should our leader behave? should be like Modiji), and “Har Ghar Modi, Har Har Modi.”

One of the Indian diaspora stated, “We are very excited to come here in the morning at 03:00 and now we are eagerly waiting for our honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” as they waited for PM Modi at the hotel.

Our group belongs to the Tamil Association. Since 10:00 p.m., we have been waiting to greet Modiji. I’m delighted to have you here. His visit will undoubtedly enhance relations between Indonesia and India even more. The entire neighbourhood can see. We are glad to have him here. Another immigrant from India replied, “Thank you so much for bringing him here we are.

Even young children gathered at the hotel to catch a peek of Prime Minister Modi.

PM Modi will take part in both the 18th East Asia Summit and the 20th ASEAN-India Summit today in Indonesia.

On Wednesday, PM Modi posted on his social media platform “X,” formerly known as Twitter, that he was heading to Jakarta to participate in ASEAN-related talks. This includes the 20th ASEAN-India Summit, which is dedicated to a relationship we adore.

The 18th East Asia Summit, which focuses on crucial development sectors including healthcare, the environment, and digital advances, will also feature me there, he continued.

The prime minister had earlier stated in his statement before leaving that he was looking forward to discussing concrete ways to work together to address global concerns with other leaders.

He also referred to India’s “Act East Policy” and its interaction with the ASEAN bloc as key pillars. The Indonesian President, Joko Widodo, invited the Prime Minister to visit Jakarta.

The 20th ASEAN-India Summit will be my first involvement. I’m looking forward to addressing the future directions of our alliance, which is entering its fourth decade, with ASEAN leaders. The ‘Act East’ strategy of India is based in large part on engagement with ASEAN. Our relationships have gained new vigour as a result of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, the prime minister stated.

“I’ll be attending the 18th East Asia Summit after that. Discussions about important regional topics like environment, health, digital transformation, and food and energy security can be had at this forum. I’m interested in discussing realistic collaboration strategies with other EAS Leaders so that we can all work together to overcome these global concerns, he continued.

In advance of the September 9–10 G20 Summit, PM Modi will return to New Delhi on Thursday night.
