President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who is due to leave office on Oct. 20, started on Thursday his last round of overseas trips through Oct. 1, with his first stop being Lisbon, Portugal.
 
In a statement issued by the State Palace, Yudhoyono will be only the second Indonesian president to visit Portugal after Sukarno, who visited the country in 1960.
 
Yudhoyono will meet Portuguese President Cavaco da Silva and Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho and sign several bilateral agreements in energy and mineral resources.
 
On Saturday, Yudhoyono is scheduled to fly to New York to attend the United Nation's 69th Session of the General Assembly, where he will also deliver a speech.
 
Yudhoyono will also lead the UN Climate Summit and deliver an opening speech for the Open Government Partnership High Level Event (OGP-HLE) meeting.
 
In addition, he is scheduled to visit Washington to inaugurate the Indonesian Muslim Association in America (IMAAM) Center.
 
The President's final stop will be to Japan, where he will visit Kyoto to receive an honorary degree from Ritsumeikan University. (ren/nfo)
