Indonesia's official defence, aerospace, helicopter and maritime security event is an annual fixture where more than 68 countries are this year exhibiting their military equipment including the latest developments in defence technology.

The Indo Defence Expo is also a platform for holding bilateral talks on defence cooperation between countries.

FBC news reports Kubuabola was due to meet Indonesia's Defence Minister, General Ryamizard Ryacudu, last week to reaffirm and advance defence ties between the two countries.
