REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, DENPASAR - Commander of Ngurah Rai Airbase Colonel Sugiharto said that kite flying must be prohibited during Bali Democracy Forum VII, held on October 10-11 in Bali. 

The kite flying is prohibited in the airspace within a radius of 32 nautical miles around the Ngurah Rai International Airport and Nusa Dua. The instruction to the local people to not fly kites is aimed to avoid any form of aerial disruption due to a previous incident when the string of a flying kite got stuck in a military helicopter while it was patrolling during APEC 2013.

"We have coordinated and cooperated with the territorial officers to restrict kite flying in the airspace of Nusa Dua area," Sugiharto remarked.

The annual foreign ministerial meeting, BDF VII, to be held in Nusa Dua area of Badung District will be attended by four leaders from Southeast Asian countries to discuss the current situation of democracy in the Asia-Pacific region.
