Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Australia will not halt collecting intelligence on Indonesia but would work towards becoming its trusted partner in the wake of damaging spying allegations.

Reports revealed last month that Australian spies targeted the phones of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, his wife and inner circle in 2009 sparked one of the worst diplomatic crises between the two strategic allies in years.

The two nation's foreign ministers agreed yesterday to establish a "hotline" and a code of conduct to restore trust, with Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop expressing her regret at the situation.
