As Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud arrived in Jakarta on Wednesday, social media users welcomed his visit with the hashtag “raja Salman,” meaning “welcome King Salman” in Indonesian.

The hashtag was trending on social networking site Twitter, where at least four million users have seen it.

King Salman landed at a military airbase in the capital of Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim-majority country, to kick off the longest leg of a month-long trip across Asia.

The visit is the first by a Saudi monarch in nearly five decades and will see the two nations sign a pact to combat terrorism, according to the Saudi envoy to Indonesia.
