Indonesia suspends military co-operation with Australia | BBC News

Indonesia has suspended all military co-operation with Australia, saying “a lot of things needed to be improved”.

Army spokesman Maj Gen Wuryanto said the halt came into force in December and a broad range of activities were affected, including joint training.

Australian Defence officials confirmed Indonesia had halted all defence co-operation over “teaching materials”.

Bilateral relations have been tense at times in recent years, although there were recent signs of improvement.
