Jokowi was accompanied by State Secretary Minister Pratikno and Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan.

Meanwhile, Prabowo was accompanied by several Gerindra Party senior politicians.

Hanura politician Syarifuddin Sudding praised the meeting. He said it can defuse tension ahead of a mass protest in Jakarta this week.

"It can make the situation more conducive," Sudding told Metrotvnews.

A number of Islamic organizations will stage a mass protest against Jakarta governor candidate Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) on November 4.
