Pirate-fighting pact bolsters maritime safety in Southeast Asian seas

The seas of Southeast Asia are getting safer, after joint naval patrols within the waters of Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines have efficiently deterred piracy within the area.
It all comes all the way down to a Trilateral Cooperation Agreement, or TCA, by which the nations pledged to conduct joint anti-piracy patrols in their waters and share information. The end result has been a major discount of kidnapping in waters where it was as quickly as infamous. Last yr, there have been zero abductions of their seas.
At the Defence Services Asia commerce show in Kuala Lumpur, the protection ministers lauded the zero-abductions statistic as a sign that their anti-piracy efforts are working. The three international locations signed the TCA in 2017, at a time when Islamic militants within the Sulu and Sulawesi seas have been launching pirate assaults and kidnapping folks.

Speaking at a joint press conference with Indonesian and Philippines’ protection officials on Monday, the Malaysia Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein mentioned last year’s no kidnapping instances signaled the success of their joint efforts to stop piracy in the seas.
“I would like to emphasise that the TCA has been, and is, crucial in performing as a deterrent against crime-terror acts in the Sulu and Sulawesi seas… Proof of its success is the zero incident of kidnapping-for-ransom reported within the year 2021. We have shown the world that strong regional security cooperation is the way forward.”
