The Malaysian and Indonesian Technical Committee to resolve the issue on the boundary in Ambalat will meet in Malaysia next month, said state news agency Bernama quoted Foreign Minister Anifah Aman as saying.

The meeting would be the 14th of such meetings since 2005, he told reporters after presenting Excellent Service Awards to the ministry's staff, here Monday.

He also said that Malaysia had submitted 13 protest notes to Indonesia concerning incursions by the Indonesians in Ambalat between 2007 and last April.

The government is still waiting for a report from the enforcement agency on the latest incident concerning the Indonesians in the area recently before submitting another note.

Anifah also clarified that Malaysia used the term Sulawesi Sea and not Ambalat when referring to the area which was under dispute.

This was because the term Ambalat specifically referred to the oil and gas concession block in the area, he said.

The minister also said the meeting of heads of Malaysian delegations abroad would be held here from June 18 to 26.

Among others, it aimed to explain the direction of the country's foreign policy under the new national leadership and to discuss the experiences and challenges of the country's representative offices abroad.

Prime Minister Najib Razak would explain the concept of 1Malaysia in terms of its aspirations and objectives at the meeting, he said.
