Caretaker Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul will discuss the issue of Indonesia’s fishing ban on Thai trawlers in Indonesian waters with the Indonesian foreign minister today. 

Marty Natalegawa will fly to Thailand on Friday and discuss with Mr Surapong the fishing ban issue and the case of two Indonesian navy personnel allegedly killed by the Thai crew of the Sor Nattaya 7 in Indonesian waters.

“I will request Mr Natalegawa to help speed up the process for Thai fishing boats to resume their operations in Indonesian waters as his government has now imposed stricter rules on Thai and other countries’ boats,’’ said Mr Surapong. The pair will speak by phone when Mr Natalegawa arrives in the Kingdom.
