Philippines-Indonesia Defense Cooperation
« on: January 20, 2012, 06:40:11 AM »
By virtue of the Agreement on Cooperative Activities in the Field of Defense and Security between the Philippines and Indonesia that was signed in 1997, the JDSCC [Joint Defense Cooperation Committee] was mandated to meet annually to implement, manage, and monitor defense cooperation between the two countries. Defense cooperation between the Philippines and Indonesia covers military training, joint military activities, exchange of personnel and information, and exchange of visits.

If, despite the assumed knowledge of the validity and justice of the Philippine claim, we fold our arms in mortal fear, we should lose not merely the respect of all law-abiding nations (the United Kingdom and the Asian countries in particular), but also a considerable measure of self-respect — which, to my mind, is more important — and, by our own inaction and timidity, lose our faith in the ultimate validity of that which is right and just.

Statement of Secretary of Foreign Affairs Albert F. del Rosario:
During the 5th meeting of the Philippines-Indonesia Joint Commission for Bilateral Cooperation (JCBC)

[Released on December 14, 2011]


Your Excellency, Minister for Foreign Affairs DR. R.M. MARTY M. NATALEGAWA, members of the press, ladies and gentlemen, good morning.

The Fifth (5th) Meeting of the Philippines-Indonesia Joint Commission for Bilateral Cooperation (JCBC) was convened here in Manila from 13 to 14 December 2011 and resulted in commitments to strengthen linkages between the governments of the Philippines and Indonesia.

Both countries agreed to continuously energize and invigorate bilateral relations, through a broad-ranging review and updating of old agreements and the structured implementation of various areas of cooperation.

To better organize this task, Minister Natalegawa and I, on behalf of the Philippine and Indonesian governments, agreed to conclude a Plan of Action for the period 2013 to 2015. This Plan of Action will identify concrete and specific activities and policies for the different government agencies to produce concrete benefits to our respective citizens.

On the area of security, defense and border cooperation, both countries agreed to review the 1975 Revised Border Crossing Agreement and the 1975 Border Patrol Agreement to ensure effective joint action and coordination on our respective border areas.

On trade, investments and other economic cooperation, the Philippines offered to host the 6th Meeting of the Joint Working Group of Senior Officials next year to implement the existing Agreement on Trade, Investments, Handicraft and Shipping, as well as to review and update the Border Trade Agreement.

Our marine and fisheries agencies have also agreed to facilitate the process of identifying priority areas of cooperation in the near future for a possible new MOU on Fisheries and Marine Cooperation.

On energy cooperation, both sides agreed to review the 1978 Agreement on Forestry and the 2001 MOU on Coal, Gas and Geothermal Energy Development. The Philippines also invited Indonesia to participate in the ongoing Philippine Energy Contracting Round.

On tourism and air services, both sides agreed to update and amend the existing MOU on Tourism Cooperation and Air Services Agreement, and committed to convene the next round of air services talks in 2012. There will also be a review and renegotiation of the MOU on Information and Communications Technology.

On the matter of culture and education, both sides welcomed the convening of the 1st Joint Working Group to implement the 2011 MOU on Basic Education. Both sides agreed to conclude the Agreement on Academic Education and consider the possibility of the establishment of an MOU on Cooperation on Technical Vocational and Training and a Cultural Agreement.
On sports cooperation, both sides are looking into establishing youth cooperation.

On the matter of twinning cities and provinces, the Philippines informed the Meeting of the signing in June 2011 of an MOU between the municipalities of Glan, Saranggani and Parang, Maguindanao, wherein both municipalities agreed to a sister-city arrangement with Tahuna, north Sulawesi.

On labor cooperation, both sides agreed to discuss the establishment of a steering committee and joint working groups, with a view to enhance the effective management of migration in order to promote and protect the welfare and rights of Filipino and Indonesian migrant workers.

On consular matters, both sides agreed to establish a Mandatory Consular Notification as well as a regular bilateral consular consultation. Both sides also agreed to exchange information on deportation/repatriation guidelines and procedures to facilitate the efficient deportation/repatriation of each other’s nationals from the host country.

There were discussions at the JCBC on developments on the evolving regional architecture in East Asia and the international financial situation, among others.

The West Philippine Sea was also discussed at a bilateral meeting prior to this morning’s session, with particular focus on the drafting of the code of conduct.

This 5th JCBC Meeting is testament to the strong and abiding friendship between the Philippines and Indonesia. It follows the momentum set by President Benigno S. Aquino III’s State Visit to Indonesia at the invitation of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono early this year. During that visit, he witnessed the signing of four (4) new agreements, all envisioning closer technical and people-to-people ties.

In our 62 years of friendship, our relations have consistently grown expanding to a wide and diverse range of areas—political; security and defense; trade, investments and other economic areas; marine and fisheries; agriculture, forestry and wildlife; energy; tourism, transportation and information; culture, education and sports; labor; and consular matters.

Indonesia remains a valued friend and partner of the Philippines in our pursuit of national development and regional security.

Thank you.

Philippines, Indonesia ink security pact


The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Indonesian military have sealed the terms of reference (TOR) for a joint working group that would aid in addressing trans-border issues.

AFP Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Jessie Dellosa finalized the TOR for the Philippine-Indonesia working group with his Indonesian counterpart, Admiral Agus Suhartono, during a bilateral meeting in Jakarta on Thursday.

The two military leaders sat down for a meeting at the close of the 2nd Jakarta International Defense Dialogue 2012 held at the Balai Sidang, Jakarta, Convention Center.

Dellosa was a resource speaker and panelist at the forum attended by some 50 defense officials and military chiefs mostly from the Asia Pacific as well as other international security officials.

There is a greater context to Indonesia's engagement with the Phlipppines - their support for claims of the the Phlipppines in the South-China Sea is not unqualified. In keeping as their status as leader of ASEAN (and as the only member of ASEAN in the G20) they want your country's acknowledgement of their status as leader via participation in their initiatives (eg. Asean humanitarian and disaster relief exercise). There's a certain amount of space in the regional fora for the Philippines to articulate its concerns but the country must be careful not the over play the hand it has. Indonesia is a G20 member and their TNI is taking great strides in modernisation. The TNI's efforts is worthy of more study.

Indonesia with regards to the great powers has argued for a policy of ''dynamic equilibrium'' with no one power dominating (or what Singapore's defence minister would call an inclusive security architecture). Some in Jakarta viewed the decision by the Australian and American governments to rotate up to 2500 marines in Darwin as counterproductive to their broader goal of achieving a closer strategic partnership between Washington and Beijing with both Washington (the supply of EDA F-16s to Indonesia) and Beijing (in March 2011, Indonesia and China signed a MOU which included the joint production of the C-802 and the purchase of C-705 anti-ship missiles,  and other strategic goods to Indonesia) as arms suppliers to Indonesia. Between 2002–2006 and 2007–11, the volume of Chinese arms exports increased by 95 per cent. China now ranks as the sixth largest supplier of arms in the world, narrowly trailing the United Kingdom. Several factors, such as where the Indonesian military wants to source its equipment and Indonesian suspicion of Chinese motives, could explain Jakarta’s ambivalence with respect to security ties with China. Indonesian military equipment acquisitions to close out 2011 suggest Jakarta believes there are many better places where it can get most of its defense equipment. These deals included six Sukhoi Su-30MKK jet fighters from Russia; three submarines from South Korea; nine C-295 medium transport aircraft from Spain; and eight Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano counter-insurgency aircraft from Brazil as well as the planned transfer of 24 F-16C/D jets from the United States. The desire for higher quality and potentially more expensive military equipment from dispersed sources probably will continue.

Despite the fact that Indonesia is the largest single recipient of Australian aid and in 2011-12, Indonesia recieved A$474.6 million in aid, in November 2011, the announcement of plans to base US Marines in Darwin was quickly met with strongly worded caution about containment of China containment from Indonesian military (TNI) chief, Admiral Agus Suhartono, and Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa.  Security expert, Professor Alan Dupont, argues that Australia again could be perceived as the ‘Deputy Sheriff’ of the US, a characterisation that was often used by regional leaders like Malaysia’s former Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to discredit Australia’s Southeast Asian credentials. It is in Australia’s best interests to resist this characterisation. The situation remains ambiguous for both Indonesia and Australia. And Security experts have suggested that Australia has to do more to sell closer US-Australia ties as non-provocative. For background on the Australian view (as a middle power) on the rise of China, I would suggest watching the video of this speech from Kevin Rudd, the then Minister of Foreign Affairs at the 48th Munich Security Conference.

ChandraSakti,

One-liners like this are not conducive to productive discussions. Flame-baiting is frowned upon on this forum.
Don't get mad at China. GET EVEN. Join the movement to defy a Chinese "order".

Democracy

As this socioeconomic divide grows, so do tensions between social classes. From the conflicts arising out of such tensions, democracy replaces the oligarchy preceding it. The poor overthrow the inexperienced oligarchs and soon grant liberties and freedoms to citizens. A visually appealing demagogue is soon lifted up to protect the interests of the lower class. However, with too much freedom, the people become drunk, and tyranny takes over.
