Indonesia is not likely to execute a group of death row convicts, mostly foreigners, for weeks or even months, until the courts decide on their last-minute legal appeals, Vice President Jusuf Kalla told Reuters on Wednesday.

Indonesia is more cautious in handling the appeals following diplomatic efforts to save the prisoners' lives, Kalla said.

"We will always hear and consider opinions, not only from Australia, but also France and Brazil," Kalla said in an interview. "That is why we are very careful in...following the process of the law."

He said, "We're waiting for the decision of the courts," adding it could take "weeks or maybe months".

Four death row inmates have appealed against their sentences after President Joko Widodo rejected their clemency pleas late last year.

Foreigners facing imminent execution on the prison island of Nusakambangan include citizens of Ghana, Nigeria and the Philippines.
