Singapore 'won't hesitate to take firm actions against intrusions' by Malaysia: Khaw


Singapore 'won't hesitate to take firm actions against intrusions' by Malaysia: Khaw

SINGAPORE: Singapore "will not hesitate to take firm actions against intrusions" in its waters if it becomes necessary, said Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan on Thursday (Dec 6) in a media conference addressing Malaysia's purported extension of the Johor Bahru port limits.
Mr Khaw said that there had been 14 intrusions into Singapore's territorial waters off Tuas in the past two weeks, after changes to the port limits were announced through Malaysia's Federal Government Gazette on Oct 25, 2018.

Mr Khaw said Singapore's security agencies will continue to patrol the area and respond to unauthorised activities on the ground.

"In view of these recent provocative developments, we have decided to extend the Singapore Port Limits off Tuas via Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (Port Limits) (Amendment) Notification 2018," said Mr Khaw.
"This extension is well within Singapore Territorial Waters, and tracks the eastern boundary of the 1999 Johor Bahru Port Limits.
"The Gazette takes effect from today," he added.

In 1979, Malaysia published a map showing the limits of the territorial waters which it claimed, which included its claim on Pedra Branca, as well as on areas at the eastern and western approaches to Singapore, Mr Khaw said at the media conference.
Singapore had protested to Malaysia to reject its claim on Pedra Branca and also "stated categorically that these new boundary lines violated Singapore's sovereignty and were unacceptable to Singapore", he said.

Nevertheless, in 1987, Malaysia went on to publish the Johor Bahru Port Limits that followed this claimed boundary line, and made slight amendments later in 1999. Since then, for 20 years, the 1999 Johor Bahru Port Limits have remained intact.
However, on Oct 25, the limits were "unilaterally and arbitrarily extended", Mr Khaw said.
"Quite apart from the fact that Singapore has never accepted their 1979 territorial claims, the recent purported extension of the Johor Bahru port limits goes beyond what even Malaysia itself claimed as its territorial waters," he said.

According to Mr Khaw, Singapore has - since at least 1999 - been exercising its jurisdiction in the waters now covered by the recent extension of the port limits.

"We have been patrolling the area regularly, and protested any intrusions or unauthorised activities. Malaysia has never laid claim to these waters, or protested our actions there," he said.

"Now, out of the blue, Malaysia is claiming these territorial waters that belong to Singapore. Without any prior consultations, Malaysia is seeking to alter unilaterally the long-standing status quo in the area.
"This is a blatant provocation and a serious violation of our sovereignty and international law," he added.
The transport minister noted that "countries do amend their port limits from time to time".
"But they must do so in a way that does not contravene international law or infringe on the sovereignty of another country," he said, adding that the last time Singapore amended its port limits was in 1997.
