According to Indonesian officials, U.S. officials had high-level contacts with Indonesian defense and foreign ministers on the above proposal in July and August, but since then, Indonesian President Joko has rejected the request. The Indonesian official said that the Indonesian government was surprised by the US proposal because Indonesia has long pursued a neutral foreign policy. Indonesia has never allowed foreign troops to operate in the country.

We dont want to be trapped by this competition, retno said in an interview in early September. Indonesia wants to show you that we are ready to be your partner..

Investment and economic ties between Indonesia and China are growing, Reuters said. Dino Patty described the US approach as a bit out of place.. We dont want to be cheated into an anti China movement, he told Reuters. We will certainly remain independent, but Indonesia has deeper economic ties with China, and China is now the most influential country in the world.

As for the move of the United States to pull Indonesia into the partnership, Greg paulin, an analyst on Southeast Asia at the center for strategic and international studies, a us think tank, said that trying to win landing rights for spy planes was a clumsy ultra vires act. It shows how little the U.S. government knows about Indonesia. Theres a clear upper limit to what you can do, and when it comes to Indonesia, its deployment, paulin told Reuters.

Reuters reported that the United States has recently used military bases in Singapore, the Philippines and Malaysia to send p-8 Poseidon maritime anti submarine patrol aircraft to carry out missions over the South China Sea.

As for the US militarys frequent activities in Chinas surrounding areas and the high-frequency approach reconnaissance of military aircraft in the coastal areas, Chinese Ministry of Defense spokesman Major Wu Qian said in August this year that the United States has increased its pressure on Chinas provocation. To this, our attitude is clear and clear: first, we are against it; second, we are not afraid of it. The Chinese army will firmly safeguard national sovereignty, security and development interests, and firmly safeguard world and regional peace and stability.
