PUTRAJAYA (Bernama): Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad drove visiting Indonesian President Joko Widodo in a Proton Persona to a luncheon he hosted at Seri Perdana, the prime minister’s official residence on Friday (Aug 8).

The two leaders left in the car from the Perdana Putra Building where they had had a four-eyed meeting.

Joko, popularly known as Jokowi, arrived Thursday (Aug 8) for a two-day visit to Malaysia. He was accompanied by his wife, Iriana Joko Widodo, and an entourage.

Dr Mahathir drove the red Proton Persona bearing registration number B 2367 A, which was followed by the other vehicles carrying members of the Indonesian entourage.
