The sovereignty of a country is the highest power state of that country how to govern and enforce the law in the territory. As one of the largest country in the world, Indonesia was not sovereign over the territory, in particular airspace. The airspace of Riau Islands and Natuna until 1946 is controlled by Flight Information Region (FIR) Singapore. It means that every flight in that airspace must received permission from Singapore, including Indonesia itself. Indonesia is supposed to be ruling all of Indonesia territory without delegating to any party.
