JAKARTA -- Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo is making arrangements to visit Japan in late July, with trips to China and South Korea under consideration, as he seeks to lay the groundwork for the Group of 20 summit to be hosted by Indonesia in November.

Widodo plans to meet with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, Chinese President Xi Jinping and South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol. He is expected to make a case for Russian President Vladimir Putin's attendance at the summit as the U.S. and other countries push for excluding Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.
