Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is going to Indonesia to attend the ASEAN Summit

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang will travel to Indonesia to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit on September 5-8, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday.

The announcement comes amid reports that China is likely to send Li to the G20 summit to be held in New Delhi on September 9 and 10 as there is little chance of Chinese President Xi Jinping attending. At the invitation of President Joko Widodo of Indonesia, current ASEAN Chairman, Premier Li Keqiang of the State Council will attend the 26th China-ASEAN Summit, the 26th ASEAN Plus Three (APT) Summit and the 18th East Asia Summit. He is scheduled to pay an official visit to Jakarta and Indonesia from September 5 to 8, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin said.

It has been reported that Prime Minister Lee is likely to go to India after attending the East Asia Summit in Jakarta.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva are among the G20 leaders confirmed to attend the summit. There has been no official word from the Indian side regarding China’s participation in the G20 summit.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has already told Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he cannot go to India to participate in the conference.

As the current chair of the G20, India hosts the annual summit of the influential group.
