Chinese State Councilor Yang Jiechi, one of the most powerful senior officials on China'€™s State Council, will arrive in Jakarta on Wednesday for a three-day visit, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

Yang is scheduled to meet several senior Indonesian officials during his visit. '€œAt the invitation of Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Djoko Suyanto, State Councillor Yang Jiechi will pay a visit to Indonesia and co-chair with Minister Suyanto the fourth meeting of the bilateral dialogue mechanism at the deputy prime ministerial level from Sept. 18 to 20,'€ Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hong Lei said in a press release in Beijing on Monday.

The previous meetings were held in 2006, 2010 and 2012.

Yang, China'€™s former foreign minister from 2007-2013, is the chief architect of China'€™s foreign policy, and his current position is higher than foreign minister and below the vice premier.
