"Singapore-based information sharing center of the Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia (ReCAAP):
Sabah’s east coast is separated from southern Philippines by the Sulu and Celebes seas. In June 2017, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia launched joint trilateral patrols aimed at safeguarding their common sea waters from pirates and militants.
A total of 40 incidents of piracy and armed robbery against ships – 29 actual incidents and 11 attempts – were reported in Asia from January to June, according to ReCAAP. By comparison, there were 40 actual incidents and seven attempts during the same period in 2017"
