On 17 January 2023 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Singapore confirmed that Singapore has completed its domestic legal processes to ratify the bilateral instruments which make up the 2022 Expanded Framework Agreements with Indonesia, namely, the Agreement on the Realignment of the Boundary between the Jakarta Flight Information Region (FIR) and the Singapore FIR, the Treaty for the Extradition of Fugitives and the Defence Cooperation Agreement. This follows Indonesia’s ratification of the FIR Agreement in September 2022 and the Extradition Treaty and DCA in December 2022. Consistent with the 2022 Exchange of Letters, Singapore and Indonesia will exchange formal notifications of completion and “jointly seek approval from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for the arrangements under the FIR Agreement, to enable the simultaneous entry into force of all three agreements on a mutually agreed date”.
