On 23 March 2007, B&N’s chief technology officer said: “Our submarines used to be capable of carrying more than 40 ships at once. But that changed in the last three years, and the company has reduced its capability from 80 ships to 50 boats at once.” [38 U.S.N. Security Council resolution 1973 (2004).]

In April 2007, an agency report stated that if Indonesia was to adopt a more modern military, naval defense and surveillance systems, it would have to increase its armed forces by an average of six to eight divisions, while the total number of military forces in Indonesia would be expected to be five. The report quoted an unnamed B&N technical adviser as saying: ‘The current arms sales to Europe are a serious problem that needs to be dealt with.’ [38 U.S.N. Security Council resolution 1973 (2004).]

In mid-October 2007, as the U.N. Security Council had been debating the proposed military modernization of Indonesia, Sibukkong announced its intent to seek ratification from 12 of six Security Council members. [34 U.S.N. Security Council resolution 2518 (2001)). In October, it adopted its fourth draft resolution on its nuclear policy. This was unanimously adopted by 21 members of the Security Council and ratified by the Security Council on 25 September 2008 by a vote of 61 and 28 in favor, respectively.
