Jakarta Attacks

The Australian Government has offered law enforcement and intelligence assistance to Indonesia following the deadly attacks in Jakarta today.

I have contacted my counterpart in Indonesia, the Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs H. E. Luhut B. Panjaitan, to convey Australia's support.

The offer follows our recent meeting at the Inaugural Indonesia-Australia Ministerial Council on Law and Security in which we agreed to closer operational and technical counter terrorism cooperation.
