Indonesia to accept China's high-speed rail plan, minister says

JAKARTA -- In a surprise twist, an Indonesian cabinet minister on Tuesday informed Japan that his government is poised to build a high-speed rail line with China.

     The Indonesian government "is considering welcoming China's proposal," Sofyan Djalil, Indonesia's national development planning minister, told Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief cabinet secretary. Djalil was in Tokyo as a special envoy of Indonesian President Joko Widodo.
