The visit is aimed at observing the situation in Rakhine state, where recent violence between the minority mainly Muslim Rohingyas and the majority Buddhists left at least 80 people dead and 115,000 homeless. Many Rohingyas who lost their homes, are now living in squalid camps or fleeing by boat. Indonesia has pledged $1 million in assistance for Rakhine state, but can Mr Natalegawa do more?

Presenter: Liam Cochrane

Speakers: Chris Lewa, Director of Arakan Project, an NGO based in Bangkok
