On Thursday, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop with Marty Natalegawa, her Indonesian partner agreed to arranged a “hotline” in order to shun any future misconceptions and hold further communication on a proposed six-point plan want to restore trust between the two nations.

Australian government grieved by the damage initiated to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono by media reports of affirmed tapping of his mobile device by Australian intelligence authorities 4 years prior, Ms Bishop said to reporters in Jakarta.

As well, Ms Bishop promised to “not embrace any demonstration or utilize our possessions and assets, incorporating intelligence assets, in any manner to harm Indonesia.

On Friday on talking on Fairfax Radio, PM Abbott was asked if Australia had agreed to discontinue accumulating intelligence on Indonesia in general.

He answered,  “No. And they certainly haven’t agreed to stop collecting intelligence on Australia.”

“But we are close friends, we are strategic partners and I certainly want Australia to be a trusted partner of Indonesia and I hope Indonesia can be a trusted partner of Australia,” he added.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott anticipates Indonesia co-operation in the anti-people smuggling campaign in Australia against individuals battling on the grounds that it was a ‘sovereignty issue’.

The hotline is a channel for both countries to handle the issues.

He said that they are truly very happy to have a broader, more formalised security and intelligence relationship as they think that is in the greatest advantage of both countries.

Mr Abbott has to sign a ‘code of ethics and protocols’ as Dr Yudhoyono wants, before the military and police co-operation is reinstated.
