“The president said it was necessary to speed up the negotiations,” said Retno. “Besides, the meeting also discussed issues on clean energy and infrastructure. Canadian investors are keen to continue investing in Indonesia,” she added.
Meanwhile, Indonesia’s G20 presidency this year faces some challenges following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine that started in February. Some US allies within the G20 have voiced their rejection of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s attendance at the summit. This includes Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who does not wish to see President Putin at the November meeting due to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.
AFP news agency reported that Trudeau had shared his view with Indonesian President Joko Widodo, who is hosting the G20 meeting, that Putin’s attendance would be “extraordinarily difficult for us and unproductive for the G20.”
“It would be a big issue for many countries, including Canada,” he told reporters in Ottawa.
