KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said his meeting with Indonesian President-elect and Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto touched on the next direction to be taken to strengthen Malaysia-Indonesia ties, among others.

He said during the meeting at his office in Putrajaya yesterday, he and Prabowo also took the opportunity to share their experiences and exchange views on their political journeys.

“Our political journeys are almost similar, as we were both tested with various challenges before being appointed. “Prabowo also shared his experience when he attended secondary school at Victoria Institution,” Anwar posted on Facebook yesterday.
