Jakarta will summon China’s ambassador to Indonesia on Monday following an incident in the Natuna Sea involving a Chinese fishing boat, Reuters reported, citing Indonesia’s fisheries minister, Susi Pudjiastuti. Pudijiastuti said Indonesia had been attempting to detain the ship for fishing illegally in waters near the South China Sea when a Chinese coast guard vessel intervened. “What we will ask the ambassador is that if they say their nine-dash line does not claim Natuna then why is there still illegal fishing happening there,” Pudjiastuti said. “Their government should not stand behind illegal and unregulated fishing,” she added.
