Close cooperation to check cross-border crimes and militants

23rd August, 2019

By NAZRINI BADARUN

TAWAU: Close cooperation between Malaysian and Indonesian security forces is essential to maintain peace and harmony at the boundary areas of the two countries.

The border areas between Malaysia and Indonesia is exposed and a focal point as a passage for cross-border criminals and militants, said Fifth Infantry Chief of Staff Lt Col Kamarulzaman Mohd Yunos here yesterday.

“We cannot say this is not occurring because there is always a possibility due to the long land boundary between Malaysia and Indonesia,” Kamarulzaman said when opening the 1/2019 Coordinated Joint Patrol (PATKOR) between the Malaysian and Indonesian Armed Forces at Pos Serudong.

Also present were commanding officer of 3rd Royal Ranger Regiment Lt. Kol Zulkifli Jaafar and Indonesia’s 600th Raider Infantry Battalion Commander Infantry Major Roland Wahyudi.

Kamarulzaman said two new joint posts have been proposed to be set up in Serudong and Saliliran for members of the two security forces to jointly monitor the border areas.

“For our part in Malaysia we are ready but we are still waiting for the Indonesian side and we have also raised this in the meeting,” Kamarulzaman added.
