Piracy on Malacca Strait down sharply: Indonesian Navy
font size    

The Indonesian Navy claimed Wednesday that piracy on the busy international water way of Malacca Strait has fallen sharply to two cases this year from 15 cases last year.

"That is a drastic drop which makes us proud," Navy Chief Admiral Slamet Soebijanto told reporters here.

Located on the maritime borders shared by Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, the Malacca Strait is one of the busiest sea lanes in the world, through which some 600 vessels and 11 million barrels of oil pass each day.

The three littoral states have coordinated patrol operations in the Malacca Strait within the framework of Malsindo launched in July 2004.
