Security tightened for Yudhoyono-Jokowi meeting

Nusa Dua, Bali (ANTARA News) - Security officials from the National Defense Forces (TNI) and National Police (Polri) have secured the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC) where President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and President-elect Joko "Jokowi" Widodo will meet on Wednesday.

"Standard security procedure is being followed for both President Yudhoyono and President-elect Jokowi," Udayana Military Commander Major General Wisnu Bawa Tenaya stated here on Wednesday.

He noted that joint security officials from the TNI and Polri are cooperating with the Presidential Security Guards (Paspampres) to ensure security for the meeting between Yudhoyono and Jokowi.

President Yudhoyono and President-elect Jokowi will meet in the BNDCC on the sidelines of the Sixth Global Forum of United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) on Wednesday.

The agenda of the meeting remains unclear, but they will probably discuss, among other things, the government transition, the 2015 state budget, and subsidized fuel prices.
