China and Indonesia have started talks on the ambitious local production of C-705 anti-ship missiles as part of Indonesia’s efforts to achieve independence in weapons production.
The defense cooperation reflects strengthening ties between both countries amid heightening tension in the South China Sea involving China and a number of Indonesia’s ASEAN neighbors.
Defense Ministry chief spokesman Brig. Gen. Hartind Asrin said that the initial talks were conducted during the first China-Indonesia defense industry cooperation meeting held in Jakarta on Wednesday.

Indonesia, China to Sign Missile Production Agreement
August 16, 2012
JAKARTA — Indonesia is holding talks with China to produce C-705 anti-ship missiles on the Indonesian island of Java as part of a bid to become more independent in manufacturing weapons. The deepening defense ties come as tensions brew over territorial disputes in the South China Sea between China and the Association of Southeast Asian nations [ASEAN].
Plans to jointly produce the missiles first emerged this July, and the conversation was continued when Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi visited the Indonesian capital Jakarta last week.
The defense ministry has confirmed that a contract for the missile production will be signed between Indonesia and China in March 2013.
Indonesian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Michael Tene said the cooperation is part of a broader goal to expand Indonesia’s military capabilities.
“Certainly we are developing close relations with all friendly countries to develop our defense capacity, not just through procurement but joint investment, joint production to develop our own capacity to develop the defense industry and of course with China also, we have a range of cooperation to develop our industries in that area,” said Tene.
