Tony Abbott refuses to commit to spy code of ethics, flags security round table

Dr Yudhoyono revealed at a press briefing on Monday night that Mr Abbott’s letter did not include an apology, but rather a pledge to “not take any action in future that may damage or interfere with Indonesia”.Dr Yudhoyono would not release the letter, but spoke approvingly about its contents before saying there were “a number of matters that still require to be clarified by the government of Australia”.Firstly, he tasked his foreign minister, or an unnamed “special envoy” to discuss “in depth the serious matters and issues … including bilateral relations with Australia” raised by the phone tapping revelation. These meetings would be the first step in developing a “protocol or code of ethics” governing bilateral relations between the countries, “including intelligence co-operation” that was “clear, just, and is abided by”.
