REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Vice President M. Jusuf Kalla will fuse the torch of the 18th Asian Games with the eternal flame of Mrapen in Grobogan, Central Java, Wednesday. The torch arrived in Yogyakarta from New Delhi, India, on Tuesday morning and was kept at the Dirgantara Museum in Yogyakarta for a night.

"On Wednesday morning, the torch will be carried in a parade to Ratu (Queen) Boko Temple and later in the evening to the Prambanan Temple," Virza Reskyana Indra, 2018 Asian Games Torch Relay organizer, stated on Tuesday.

On Thursday, the torch relay will proceed to Yogya Monument, which is at a distance of 10 kilometers, and will pass through the Mangkubumi and Malioboro roads, Zero Kilometer Point, until the Yogyakarta Square. Yogyakarta Mayor Haryadi Suyuti will hand over the torch to the Indonesia Asian Games 2018 Organizing Committee (INASGOC) that will head to Solo, Central Java.
