House prepares for King Salman’s visit

The House of Representatives is working to ensure that everything is well-organized for the visit of King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud of Saudia Arabia.

The House’s secretariat general said the legislative body had coordinated with the Saudi kingdom’s protocol affairs office to find out all the things King Salman might need during his visit.

The secretariat general further said that the House had started to beautify the House complex for the king. King Salman will visit Indonesia from March 1 to March 9.

Damayanti, the secretariat general’s deputy chairman for hearings, said physical preparations to welcome King Salman would take place over two weeks.

To assist the king, the House will install a portable ramp in front of the Nusantara Building. Built in 1968, certain parts of the Nusantara Building are not friendly to the elderly and people with disabilities.  King Salman is 81 years old.

“The king walks slowly. It’s more comfortable for him to walk with a ramp. Personnel from the kingdom’s protocol affairs office have checked the ramp and it’s all correct,” said Damayanti.

She further explained that King Salman also required clean toilets. King Salman will use a special toilet similar to the one used by the President. A room containing medical equipment has also been prepared, she added. (ebf
