” Australia Apologises to Indonesia for Naval Breaches of their Territory”

#AceWorldNews says Australia apologized to Indonesia on Friday for naval breaches of Indonesian territory, Reuters reported. The breaches happened as Canberra stop boats carrying would-be asylum seekers from entering its waters. Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison had been told earlier this week about the “inadvertent breaches” on multiple days and immediately informed the Indonesian navy. A formal apology would be issued by Australia’s embassy in Jakarta on Friday. Indonesia downgraded its relations with Australia in November as a result of spying allegations.
