Background: INTRODUCTION: Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi has been in Jakarta for two days of talks with Indonesian leaders. She had discussions with President Suharto on possible solutions to the Kampuchea problem.
SYNOPSIS: The visit was arrange after diplomatic contacts between Indonesia, India, Vietnam and the Soviet Union. India wants to revive the idea of a regional conference on Kampuchea.
Many of Indonesia's large Indian community were at Jakarta airport to greet Mrs Gandhi who was met by President Suharto. India boycotted last July's United Nations conference on Kampuchea promoted by Indonesia and its partners of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Now Mrs Gandhi considers Indonesia the ASEAN country least unsympathetic to Vietnam and the Kampuchean regime it backs. The Indian leaders wants President Suharto to persuade the other ASEAN countries - Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and Singapore - to support a new regional conference.
Other issues discussed included energy. India also wants Indonesia support within the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) for special consideration on oil supplies, while Jakarta wants Indian help with its nuclear programme.
