Japan, Indonesia agree to boost maritime ties

But bilateral talks yield minimal progress on big infrastructure deals

JAKARTA -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Indonesian President Joko Widodo agreed to bolster maritime cooperation, including on security and economic development, during bilateral talks in Bogor, Indonesia, on Sunday.

The two leaders also reaffirmed a joint partnership to develop a sea port in Indonesia's West Java Province, but stopped short of agreeing on details for other key infrastructure deals, including the trans-Java railway.
