Australian military lets slip the truth about Indonesian military aggression
late last year Indonesia temporarily suspended all military co-operation with Australia after a member of the Indonesian Special Forces, known as Kopassus, saw 'offensive training material' at the Special Air Service base in Perth.
The Indonesian army had officially sent a letter to Chief of the Australian Defence Force, Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin, in December ceasing military ties.
"All forms of co-operation have been suspended," Indonesian military spokesman Major General Wuryanto reported to the international media.
The falling-out was sparked by a grievance in November from an Indonesian military officer who was on exchange in Perth to teach Indonesian to Australian special forces.
