Abstract
Indonesia has to fully control "Flight Information Region" (FIR) over the Natuna islands to strengthen control over air space in the border area. Natuna borders on South China Sea in which Pacific big powers, China and the United States have security interest. FIR over Natuna has to be put immediately under full control of Indonesia. FIR concerns not only flight safety, but also the country's sovereignty," Bamsoet said during a working visit to the border area together with the country's military chief, FIR over Natuna is still controlled by Singapore. Currently the government puts border areas high in priority in its development program. The paradigm of development in border areas should be based on national security and improvement of the local people's welfare, Indonesia's territorial security is determined partly by security in border areas. Therefore, development of military base in the Natuna islands is very important. It is not impossible we also would build and strengthen military bases in other outermost islands.
