First joint aerial patrol in Sulu Sea

15th February, 2019

By NAZRINI BADARUN

TAWAU: Military observers from Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia took part in an aerial patrol over Sulu Sea, the first for the Trilateral Maritime Patrol (TMP) on Wednesday.

The aerial patrol was conducted by a CN 235 aircraft from the Royal Malaysian Air Force simultaneously for the first time with Royal Malaysian Navy ship KD Sri Gaya and the Philippine Navy’s BRP Anastacio Cacayorin.

According to Maritime Command Centre director Captain Pulendren Paramasivam, the joint maritime patrol between the Malaysian and Philippine navies since October 2017 has indirectly provided an opportunity to conduct training and enhance joint operation and intelligence sharing in Sulu Sea.

“This initiative as a whole has increased cooperation between the two countries towards efforts to safeguard security and curb terrorist activities including sea robbery and kidnapping in the Sulu Sea,” Pulendren said.

The sea and air patrol under the Trilateral Cooperative Arrangement (TCA) will continue on a rotational basis between the three countries to ensure the waters of the Sulu Sea is constantly monitored against any activity that threatens the security of the maritime community, he said.
