Malaysia, Indonesia agrees to use drone for border patrol

Malaysia and Indonesia have agreed in principle on the use of technology such as drones to monitor security and crime along the borders of both countries.

Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the Malaysia-Indonesia border agreement which will be renewed next year will lean towards the use of technology to monitor border security to resolve border issues for the benefit of both nations. Indonesia agreed to implement the use of drones and technology in monitoring,  and enforcement along the borders of both countries.

He said Malaysia and Indonesia will continue to work closely to resolve issues like smuggling, drug trafficking, human trafficking, and cross border crimes. “The border (land) between Malaysia and Indonesia (such as in Sabah and Sarawak, and in Kalimantan) is more than 1,000 km, and of course it is difficult to monitor, and needs the use of technology,” he said.
