RI, Australia to conduct joint patrols in Timor Sea

Indonesia and Australia will conduct joint patrols of the Timor Sea this month in an effort to clamp down on illegal fishing in the waters.

Indonesian consul general in Darwin Harbangun Napitupulu on Tuesday said three Australian patrol boats and a reconnaissance plane with some 53 officials from related institutions would leave Darwin for Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, for the operation on Sept. 7 or 8.

The operation, he said, was the continuation of a similar exercise held by both countries in Arafura Sea last year.
