REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - North Korean President Kim Yong Nam arrived on Sunday for a four-day working visit during which he will meet with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. During the visit, President Kim would be accompanied by three ministerial-level officials, Teuku Faizasyah, President Yudhoyono`s special aide for international relations, said in a press statement on Sunday.

President Kim plans to pay a courtesy call on President Yudhoyono on Tuesday. At the meeting, the two leaders would hold bilateral talks, he said.

Faizasyah said President Yudhoyono would hold a state banquet in honor of the North Korean leader on Tuesday night. "Indonesia has established good relations with North Korea since the two countries opened diplomatic ties in 1961. The bilateral meeting between President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and President Kim Yong Nam will serve as a good momentum for the two countries to foster relationship between the two nations," he said.
