PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad drove visiting Indonesian President Joko Widodo in a Proton Persona to a luncheon he later hosted at Seri Perdana, his official residence.
The two leaders left in the car from the Perdana Putra Building where they had held a four-eyed meeting.
Joko, popularly known as Jokowi, arrived yesterday for a two-day visit to Malaysia. He is accompanied by his wife, Iriana Joko Widodo.
Dr Mahathir’s red Proton Persona, bearing the registration number plate B 2367 A, was followed by other vehicles carrying members of the Indonesian entourage.
This is the second time that Jokowi has been in a Proton car driven by Dr Mahathir. In Feb 2015, Dr Mahathir had taken Jokowi on a test drive in a Proton car at the Sepang race circuit. – Bernama
