China Calls Natuna EEZ Waters Traditional Fishing Grounds?

The situation in the waters of the Natuna Islands is still heating up due to provocation by Chinese ships. The Indonesian Air Force deployed 4 F-16 fighter aircraft to Natuna, Riau Islands, to assist with security in Natuna waters.

Four F-16 aircraft and 60 TNI members from Air Squadron 16 Roesmin Nurjadin Pekanbaru Air Base were sent to the Natuna region in the Riau Islands Province.

The sending of troops and aircraft was to strengthen the Eagle 20 crossing operation which was centered in Natuna, following tensions in Natuna due to provocation by Chinese ships.

Roesmin Nurjadi Air Base Commander, Air Marshal Ronny Irianto Moningka, said that the sending of F-16 aircraft and TNI personnel was in accordance with orders from the TNI Commander, Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto.

Has the state taken a firm stance against the maneuvers of fishermen and Chinese coast guard vessels entering the Natuna waters of the Riau Islands?
