China president Xi Jinping on Indonesia trade visit

China's President Xi Jinping is visiting Indonesian capital Jakarta, where cementing ties with Southeast Asia's biggest economy will be top of his agenda.

It'll mainly be about business and trade - but regional security issues like the South China Sea are also expected to be discussed.

It is his first visit to a South East Asian country since he assumed the presidency in March - a reflection of just how important Indonesia is to China.

Our correspondent Karishma Vaswani has more.
