Heir to the British throne Prince Charles has arrived in Jakarta and greeted by chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council Din Syamsudin at the Istiqlal Mosque.
British Embassy spokesperson Faye Belnis said as quoted by kompas.com on Sunday afternoon that the prince went straight from the Halim Perdana Kusuma airport to Istiqlal and discussed inter-faith matters with Din.
During his visit to Indonesia, the prince is scheduled to meet with the head of state and visit an Eco-Tourism Restoration project to be developed in Bungku village, Kuang Jaya, Batanghari district, Jambi.
Covering 49,000 hectares of land in Jambi (and another 52,000 hectares in South Sumatra), the restoration project site has been handed over from a private firm to the government to be converted into an ecosystem restoration location.
