Indonesia will again hold a trilateral exercise with the Philippines and Malaysia in the border regions of the three countries after Eid-al-Fitr, the Defence Minister, Ryamizard Ryacudu, said here on Friday.
The forces involved in the exercise would not be from the elite troops only, but from the entire National Armed Forces, he said.
The exercises would be carried out in Kalimantan. "They are soldiers and trained, so we just make some adjustments," he said.
Ryamizard stressed that joint exercises were important to check the spread of terrorism. "We must stop terrorism before it spreads widely," he said.
