Indonesia recalls ambassador to Australia in spying row

Monday, 18 November 2013 - 17:21

Indonesia recalled its ambassador to Australia in a furious response to reports that Australian spy agencies tried to listen to the phone calls of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono as well as his wife and ministers.

Jakarta also said that all cooperation with Canberra would be reviewed after secret documents leaked by US intelligence fugitive Edward Snowden named the president and nine of his inner circle as targets of the surveillance.

The escalating row came with ties between the strategic allies already strained over previous spying allegations and ways to deal with boatpeople heading for Australia via Indonesia.
