JAKARTA: Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin says the government is studying the possibility of using drones to address security issues along Sabah’s waters and border areas.
He said the situation in the waters of Sabah, which see frequent abductions and cross-border crimes, requires more efficient and well-prepared precautionary measures.
“In the waters of Sabah (for example), the border with neighbouring countries (the Philippines and Indonesia) is too long, stretching over 1,000km.
“We can use drones in the border areas. This is what we are thinking about,” he said at an event with Malaysians in Indonesia at the embassy in Jakarta last night.
Muhyiddin is on a two-day working visit to Indonesia as part of efforts to strengthen strategic cooperation with the republic on issues of mutual interest. - FMT
