REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, SOLO -- The Indonesian Asian Games Organizing Committee (INASGOC) continued the Asian Games torch relay from Yogyakarta to Solo on Thursday. "On behalf of all people of Yogyakarta, we receive the torch from INASGOC Chief Eris Herryanto to take it to Solo," Mayor of Yogyakarta Haryadi Suyuti remarked here on Thursday.

Suyuti then lit the torch, bearing a blend of the flame from India and Mrapen's perennial flame placed in a special lantern of tinder box, which was then handed over to INASGOC Director Herty Purba, before being brought to Solo, Central Java.

"We received the Asian Games flame from Yogyakarta to continue our trip to the city of Solo," Purba noted.

The 2018 Asian Games torch relay in Yogyakarta started from the Yogyakarta Palace. Yogyakarta Special Region Governor Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X officially lit the Asian Games torch from a mini-cylinder that had been prepared in the palace yard and handed over the torch to Foreign Affairs Minister Retno Marsudi.
