President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

It is already day 7 prior to the event. I have checked the details since morning. We have checked everything and I want to say that we are ready to host the G20 Summit guests.

Reporter

From the guests list, who have confirmed to come, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

To this date, we have received confirmation from 17 heads of state/government.

Reporter

Does it include Putin and Zelenskyy, Sir? Any confirmation from Mr. Putin?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Few days ago, I talked by phone to President Putin and President Zelenskyy. They said that they would attend the summit if the condition is favorable.

Reporter

What is the favorable condition like, Sir?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Well, just ask them. They said that they would attend it if the condition is favorable. If not, President Zelenskyy will probably participate virtually.

Reporter

Have Joe Biden and Xi Jinping made confirmation, Sir? 

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Yes. Seventeen heads of state/government have confirmed. Normally, 17 – 18 heads of state/government attend the event under normal conditions, but since the world is currently in crises, all countries are in crises, I think it would be really great if they all could attend the summit.

Reporter

Thank you, Sir.
