ASEAN counter-terrorism exercise kicks off in Indonesia

09 September 2013

The first Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Defense Ministers' Meeting Plus Counter-Terrorism Exercise kicked off in Jakarta on 9 September. Scheduled to last until 13 September, it will include several terrorism scenarios, including attacks on an oil tanker and a crowded public event.

This exercise has been several years in the making. Back in 2011, ASEAN defense officials first contemplated a tabletop counter-terrorism exercise that was to take place in Indonesia by mid-2012. The tabletop never took place, but has now materialised into this week's full-blown exercise.

The exercise is slated to bring together participants from the 10 ASEAN nations, as well as eight Plus dialogue partners.
