Batik and fish at Jokowi, Turnbull dinner
The Jakarta Post
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull welcomed on Friday President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo to his home in Sydney for dinner.
Wearing batik, Turnbull offered fish to his Indonesian counterpart.
Journalists were barred from the event but later photos of the dinner circulated on social media. Both leaders were seen with their wives, First Lady Iriana and Lucy Turnbull.
"With Iriana and Lucy we had a beautiful dinner last night," Turnbull said on Saturday on the sidelines of ASEAN-Australia Special Summit in Sydney.
Jokowi said the Australian PM served fish for dinner. Talks were light and warm, despite covering a lot of things from kids and grandkids, trade, regional conditions to the Australian Embassy in Jakarta.
"We ate fish and talked. Nothing special in the talk, just the common and simple things," he said.
Later, Turnbull complimented Jokowi's grandson, Jan Ethes Srinarendra, on his good looks.
"Mr President, you have a handsome grandson," he said when meeting with the members of the Outstanding Youth for The World on Saturday. (ant)
