The command of the Indonesian army says it is withdrawing troops from the Malacca Islands following what seems to be an end of the Muslim-Christian unrest there which has claimed thousands of lives for the past 2 years. The number of soldiers stationed in the islands is to be reduced from 7,000 to 1,500, the troops withdrawal taking place in stages, a military spokesman is quoted as saying by RIA Novosti. The deadline of the troops withdrawal is not revealed. Analysts mention a considerable progress being reached in the mutual understanding between the authorities and the warring parties. At the same time, the unrest in the Malacca Islands is thought to be of a cyclical nature, both parties retaining fairly large squadrons of fanatics.
