Security Forces Optimize Security for the 43rd ASEAN Summit in Jakarta
Jakarta – Security forces from various elements such as the TNI, Polri, and the State Intelligence Agency (BIN) continue to optimize efforts to secure the 43rd ASEAN Summit or Summit.
Regarding this matter, TNI Commander Admiral Yudo Margono revealed that securing the 43rd ASEAN Summit would not be much different from securing the top events of the G20 Summit in Bali in 2022 and the 42nd ASAEN Summit in Labuan Bajo, NTT.
He added that the security strategy would be divided into several levels.
“The organization is almost the same. For security, there is ring 1 security (carried out by) Paspampres (Presidential Security Force). Then, ring 2, ring 3 with territorial troops,” said TNI Commander Yudo Margono.
Before implementing security for the 43rd ASEAN Summit in Jakarta, the Commander said, the TNI and Polri would continue to coordinate to form a security task force.
“Later, of course, the TNI Commander and the National Police Chief will lead the security,” said Yudo Margono.
Previously, the South Jakarta City Government was committed to continuing to support the success of securing the ASEAN Summit. One of them is setting up the Civil Service Police Unit (Satpol PP).
Deputy Mayor for Administration of South Jakarta, Edi Sumantri, said that there were several locations that the delegation would visit. Therefore, he hopes that all levels of Satpol PP can support this event.
“I hope all the personnel on duty will be able to support during the activity,” said Edi.
For your information, the 43rd ASEAN Summit will be held on 5-7 September 2023 in Jakarta.
