Spying Row

November 30, 2013 by  

Spying Row, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has called for a “security round table” with Indonesia as a way to move forward from the spying scandal that has shaken relations between the two countries.

Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono last night revealed some details of a letter Mr Abbott had sent in response to Indonesian concerns over spying.

Mr Yudhoyono said Mr Abbott had agreed to his proposal of a new code of conduct between the two countries, following revelations Australia tapped Mr Yudhoyono’s phone, as well as that of his wife and ministers in 2009.

He also said Mr Abbott had agreed to enter into a new bilateral relationship with Indonesia.

Mr Abbott said this morning that he would reflect on Mr Yudhoyono’s statement in the coming days.

“It was a very warm statement. It was a statement that was very positive about Australia,” Mr Abbott told reporters in Canberra.

“What the president is proposing is that trusted envoys should meet in the next few days to resolve any outstanding issues in the relationship.
