Al-Jubeir started his two-day visit to Indonesia on Monday. He paid a courtesy call on President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo on the first day.
"Indonesia and Saudi Arabia will focus on issues related to the protection of Indonesian citizens and migrant workers. The two foreign ministries may discuss about Indonesian citizes who are still facing death penalty in Saudi Arabia," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arrmanatha Nasir told a press briefing last week.
It is Al-Jubeir's second visit to the archipelagic nation. Saudi Arabia is Indonesia's largest trade partner in the Middle East region.
