Australia’s efforts to counter international terrorism and the spread of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) are among its highest foreign policy priorities. Australia has concluded nine bilateral arrangements promoting closer cooperation on counter-terrorism in the Asia-Pacific region, and has provided practical assistance to strengthen the region’s counter-terrorism capacity. Australia also co-hosted with Indonesia the Regional Ministerial Meeting on Counter-Terrorism in Bali in February 2004 and is engaged in follow-up work. In July 2004 the Jakarta Centre for Law Enforcement Cooperation - a joint Australia-Indonesia initiative - was opened. The Centre will boost the capacity of law enforcement agencies to fight terrorism and other transnational crime.
