Malacca Strait states agree on air patrols

The Jakarta Post - Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore agree on air patrols to boost security in Malacca Strait
The chiefs of defense forces from the three nations announced the "Eyes in the Sky" plan after a two-day meeting in Kuala Lumpur with their counterpart from Thailand, saying it would bolster coordinated maritime patrols launched last year following rising cases of sea robberies and fears about a possible terrorist attack on ships.

"We want to show the international community that we are serious about securing the Malacca Strait," Indonesia's military commander Gen. Endriartono Sutarto told a news conference.
