The Indonesia-China dispute arose after the People’s Republic of China incorporated the Natuna area into its territory and doing reclamation and then expanded small islands such as Mischief Reef and Subi Island as part of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea Jakarta and Beijing have long been at loggerheads in the Natuna region. The construction of an integrated Indonesian military base in Natuna is not only to send a strong message to China, but also part of Indonesia’s efforts to emerge as a real maritime player in the Indo-Pacific region. This paper uses a qualitative approach and the theoretical concept used is the Deterrence Effect theory, as well as a concept of Defense and Security. The results of this research indicate that Indonesia responds quickly to all actions taken by China to interfere with Indonesia’s sovereignty, one of which is to build an Integrated Military Base in Natuna as a Deterrence Effect against all Chinese claims to Indonesian sovereignty.
