Julie Bishop’s Indonesian counterpart, Mohammad Marty Natalegawa, is in posturing election mode when he says Australia’s spying could impede Indonesia’s current cooperation on people smuggling.

The opposition foreign affairs spokeswoman, Tanya Plibersek, says it is now imperative that the foreign minister, Julie Bishop, rebuilds Australia’s ties with Indonesia…

What a fraud.
