Indonesian Navy has Ambalat under control

Indonesia`s KRI Untung Surapati-872 warship last Sunday managed to drive away a Malaysian warship, the KD Yu-3500, which had tried to trespass Indonesian waters in the Ambalat Block.

A day earlier, the Indonesian Navy`s KRI Hasanudin-366 also drove away KD Baung-3509, a helicopter of the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, and a Malaysian Beachcraft which tried to enter the Ambalat Block.

According to the TNI, nine territorial violations by Malaysian marine and police vessels had happened in the recent past. Based on data obtained from House Commission I for defense affairs, Malaysia has made 11 border violations over Indonesia`s territory since January.
