Merauke, Jubi- A security task force under at Indonesia and Papua New Guinea border conducted a patrol for the border markers.
During a day- patrolling, there were no stakes shifting from the borders.
Brigade commander 15 / Kujang II, Colonel Infantry Bagus Suryadi Tayo told reporters on last week that patrolling border markers are routine tasks involving 10 soldiers each week.
He further said there are approximately 33 border markers in the southern region of Papua that become a priority in territorial security. “Yes, patrolling is conducted in order to convince that the stakes are always in place and after conducting routine patrol, we find no shifting,” he said.
