Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Newly inaugurated Indonesian President Joko Widodo, better known as Jokowi, received US Secretary of State John Kerry at Merdeka Palace on Monday night to talk on climate change.

Jokowi added that he also hinted at investment and infrastructure, but he did not go into the detail because he has just being inaugurated as president.
