Indonesian President to Visit Norway

Indonesian President, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, will visit his counterpart in Oslo this week.
The Indonesian head of state was slated to meet with Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, speaker Thorbjorn Jagland as well as members of the foreign affairs committee.
Crown Prince Haakon was also to meet with the president, who was scheduled Wednesday to deliver a speech on “Promoting Peace and Conflict Resolution in a Transforming Indonesia.”
The visit is also aimed at improving bi-lateral ties.
Moreover, his state visit is also to thank Norway for its assistance in Tsunami-ravaged Aceh.
Norway contributed to an historic peace deal in Aceh as part of the Aceh Monitoring Mission, which was led by the European Union.The peace pact between Acehnese separatists and the Indonesian government ended three decades of fighting and came in the wake of the devastating 2004 Tsunami, which killed 168-thousand Acehnese.
Yudhoyono was due to arrive in Norway late Tuesday, after attending a two-day summit of leaders from the European Union and key Asian countries which opens in the Finnish capital Helsinki this weekend.
