Australia and Indonesia discuss joint military training

Indonesian and Australian troops could soon be conducting joint training exercises on Australian soil.

The idea was discussed between the two nations' defence ministers, Australia's Peter Dutton and Indonesia's Prabowo Subianto, who met in Jakarta.

Australia has also offered places for Indonesia's best military personnel at Duntroon.

Dutton said the renewed defence cooperation arrangement would see Australia and Indonesia step up their joint training initiatives, and defence operational activities over the coming years.
