Fleet Support Office JakartaStrategic Areas of Concern • Strategic Areas of Concern • Indonesia is the most populous Muslim and 4th most populous country in the world. With visits by the President, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, and numerous visits by military officials including the CJCS, CNO, PACOM, 7th Fleet, and COMLOG, in the past year Indonesia is becoming increasingly important to the United States. • All of these visitors have pledged increased military support, assistance, and coordination with host country military. This has already and will continue to increase port visits to Indonesia and result in more exercises with Indonesia TNI-AL (NAVY) such as NEA and CARAT in the future. • These visits and pledges are a result of the United States lifting of sanctions and weapons embargos on Indonesia due to human rights violations. Some areas of the Indonesian government and TNI are still hesitant and sometimes defiant of the U.S. assistance/cooperation. • Logistics concerns here are often in the area of importation and customs clearance because there is no Status Of Forces Agreement with Indonesia and excessive corruption.
