Jakarta (ANTARA) – Chief of the Jakarta Metropolitan Police Inspector General Fadli Imran confirmed the deployment of 4,382 police personnel to offer security during the ASEAN Summit scheduled to commence in Jakarta on Saturday (April 24).
“In total, 4,382 police personnel will be involved to provide security at 51 locations in the capital,” Imran remarked while checking preparations of the security post near the ASEAN Secretariat in South Jakarta on Friday.
The security arrangements encompass traffic routes, hotels and accommodations, and the airport when the ASEAN leaders arrive.
The police will also intensify security, especially in the third ring, which becomes the main zone of the police’s security.
The Presidential Security Details (Paspampres), including those of the Jakarta Regional Military Command (Kodam Jaya), are tasked with offering security in the first and second zones.
The ASEAN Summit will discuss several issues, including the political crisis in Myanmar.
A total of ASEAN leaders, including Myanmar junta Min Aung Hlaing, will be present at the summit.
Indonesian President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) recently highlighted his plans to broach the possibility of holding an ASEAN Summit to discuss the Myanmar issue with the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam, who is this year’s ASEAN chair.
Furthermore, the head of state stressed that dialogue for reconciliation be held at the earliest to restore democracy, peace, and stability in the country.
