     Secretary of National Defense Delfin N. Lorenzana met virtually with Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto of Indonesia to exchange views on current regional security issues on 29 October 2021. 

     Minister Prabowo thanked the Philippines for its assistance in the rescue of Indonesian fishermen, who were abducted by the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), earlier this year. 

     Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Lorenzana and Prabowo welcomed the continued engagements of the defense and military establishments of the two countries. 

     The two defense ministers also discussed the trilateral security cooperation of the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia, which remains crucial in deterring unlawful activities in the shared borders of the three countries. The next meeting of the three countries will be held in the first quarter of 2022 with Indonesia as host.
