 The matter was conveyed by the 2024 Presidential Election's president-elect during a courtesy visit to Chinese Prime Minister Li Qiang in Beijing on Tuesday.

"We see the complementary relationship between China and Indonesia as a reality that we are very grateful for, for the friendship and trust bestowed upon us," said Prabowo in a statement issued by the republic's Ministry of Defence.
