Foreign Ministry surveys RI-Timor Leste borders

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta Wed, 08/26/2009 10:40 PM The Foreign Ministry is conducting a survey of areas bordering Indonesia and Timor Leste, including five regions that remain disputed, an official said Wednesday.

The results of the survey will be reported to Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda and will later be discussed with the House of Representatives to set the border lines between the two neighbors.

The five disputed areas are Imbate, Sumkaen, Haumeniana, Nilulat and Tibana, and are located between Oecusse and Timor Tengah Utara regency.

Dodie Herado, who is heading the survey team, said a survey was needed to boost security in the areas following reports that Indonesian security officials there had been facing difficulties in guarding, citing financial constraints.

“We are going to check the facilities of security forces in the border areas,” Dodie told Antara news agency.
