The Indonesian Military (TNI) plans to construct a new naval base in Sambas, West Kalimantan, near the border with Malaysia’s Sarawak, a senior military official has said.

Deputy Navy chief of staff Vice Adm. Widodo said on Wednesday night that the naval base could strengthen the country’s defense in border areas.

Widodo also said that the Navy planned to make its naval base in Pontianak a main naval base later this month.

With the change in status, the naval base in Pontianak would be put under a rear admiral from a colonel today.

Pontianak and Sambas are close to the border area and the upgrading of their status could strengthen their capacity.

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has pledged to turn the country into a maritime power. - See more at: http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/07/10/national-scene-navy-build-base-west-kalimantan.html#sthash.JJtLOOC6.dpuf
