    Batam: The Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI) made assurance of the Chinese coast guard and fishing vessels having departed from Indonesia's exclusive economic zone (EEZ) near Natuna waters, Riau Islands Province.

    Nevertheless, the maritime security operation in the Indonesian EEZ will be conducted round the clock during the year.

    According to Joint Defense Regional Commands (Kogabwilhan) Commander I Rear Admiral Yudo Margono, seven naval ships were deployed to support the routine patrols there.

    "There is no time limit. The operation to safeguard our waters will be conducted during the year," he notified journalists in Natuna District on Sunday, January 12, 2020.

    Based on an aerial reconnaissance conducted by the Indonesian Air Force's reconnaissance aircraft at 2 p.m. local time, the Chinese vessels had already exited the Indonesian EEZ.

    In addition, reports on Chinese coast guard and fishing vessels no longer being visible near the Natuna waters were also backed by the commanders of the Indonesian naval ships that expelled the Chinese ships from the Indonesian EEZ.

    The military official expressed keenness to bring to light this latest condition to rectify the information been circulated among members of the Indonesian public.

    On Saturday, three Indonesian naval ships still spotted several Chinese coast guard and fishing vessels in Indonesia's EEZ near Natuna waters. The warships then drove the Chinese fishing boats out of the Indonesian EEZ when they were attempting to spread their fishing nets. If the Chinese fishing vessels remain in the Indonesian EEZ, they will be apprehended and tried in court. (Antara)
