Metrotvnews.com, Hangzhou: President Joko Widodo has left Hangzhou, China to attend the 28th and the 29th ASEAN Summits in Vientiane, Laos.

"President Joko Widodo and First Lady Iriana departed from Hangzou tonight," Presidential Secretariat press, media and information bureau chief Bey Machmudin said in a press release on Monday (9/5).

The 28th and the 29th ASEAN Summits will be held on September 6-8. It is the first time ASEAN holds back-to-back summits.

The 28th ASEAN Summit will discuss ASEAN's internal affairs, while the 29th ASEAN Summit will focus on ASEAN's external affairs.

"President Jokowi will reiterate the importance of peace and stability in the region," Bey stated few days ago.
