Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has asked Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo to halt the executions of drug offenders, who include two Australians.

Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has reportedly asked Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo to halt the executions of Australians Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan.

Ms Solberg visited Jakarta for bilateral talks on Tuesday and afterwards told the Norwegian newspaper Verdens Gang that she “asked explicitly not to implement the imminent death sentences”.

She said Mr Joko had responded that it was part of Indonesia’s legal system and that Indonesia faced a huge drug problem.
