KUALA LUMPUR/JAKARTA -- Malaysia's Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin began a two-day visit to Indonesia on Thursday, his first overseas trip since assuming leadership after ousting former leader Mahathir Mohamad in a political coup a year ago.

A bilateral meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo is on the agenda. Muhyiddin could use the trip to boost his reputation at a time when he is believed to have lost the confidence of Malaysia's parliament.
