Indonesia has only suspended language programme with Australia - minister

JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's security minister said on Thursday the military had not suspended all cooperation with Australia, contradicting a military spokesman who said "all forms of cooperation" had been suspended.

"Steps have been taken by the military chief to suspend a language-training programme in Australia," chief security minister Wiranto said in a statement, referring to reports he had received from the defence minister, the foreign minister and the military chief.

"This means it was not a cancellation of all cooperation, as was reported in a lot of media recently."
