JAKARTA, Indonesia – Indonesia's President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has visited the Natuna islands in a move seen as sending a message on Indonesia's efforts to protect its sovereignty over the area in the edge of the South China Sea.
Jokowi, accompanied by top security officials, made the visit Thursday on board the KRI Imam Bonjol, a warship that fired warning shots last week at Chinese fishing vessels in the area and detained one ship and its seven crew members.
