Diplomatic challenges for Australia over Sri lanka, Indonesia
Canberra has offered both incentives and cautions to Sri Lanka over its treatment of displaced civilians living in camps after the end of fighting with the Tamil Tigers.
On another front, Australia’s Prime Minister has made several phone calls to key world figures ahead of next week’s G-20 leaders meeting in the United States. One of those was Indonesia’s President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and one item on the agenda was Australia’s war crimes investigation into the deaths of five Australian journalists at Balibo in East Timor in 1975.
