The PM Julia Gillard has met

the Indonesian President Susilo

Bambang Yudhoyono in her latest

high level meeting in Bali.

Julia Gillard has already met

the leaders of Japan, South

the ASEAN and east Asia summits

this weekend. The two spent more than an hour this weekend. The two leaders

discussing a range of topics

including cooperation on

regional security and disaster regional security and disaster

relief. Afterwards the PM held

a news conference. She said

returning Indonesian minors

accused of people smuggling one topic they discussed. I accused of people smuggling was

indicated to President

Yudhoyono what I said publicly

yesterday, which is I am

concerned about the amount of time that has been taken to

ascertain the age of some

Indonesian minors. I do remind

that when we establish people

are minors, that they are under age, they are returned to

Indonesia, we do not seek to

charge and jail minors. But

there have been times where I

think ascertaining age has think ascertaining age

taken longer than it should have and I want to step up our

partnership and cooperation

with Indonesia on how we can

ascertain people's ages and if

they are minors, get them back

possible. Sorry, I'll just take a follow up. ... Will you take to

to step up or speed up that process? We need to work between us and Indonesia

on the best way of addressing

this, clearly if we can have the closest possible

Indonesia on accessing cooperation between us and

documents and the like that

might help identify people's

ages, then that will assist,

but I do have the concern that

it's taken too long and I've

relevant Russian, they're relevant Russian, they're aware

of my view that we need to take a step forward here and find ways of getting age-determined

more quickly. Yes? REPORTER: Do you acknowledge that it has

been diplomatically a tough 12

months or so in relation to the live export cattle been a,

etc? There was no mention of

the live cattle ban at all during my discussions with President Yudhoyono. On the

circumstances of the 14-year-old boy here 14-year-old boy here in Bali, I

did thank President Yudhoyono

for the care that Indonesian

authorities have shown to

ensure that this young kept separately, has ready

access to his parent, they access to his parent, they have

shown that degree of care and

Yudhoyono for that. On the concern and I thanked President

relationship with Indonesia, we

have a strong, positive relationship with Indonesia. It is our nearest neighbour. It is partnership with Indonesia, we so important to us, this

take a view of it as a strategic partnership for our two countries. Yes, there two countries. Yes, there have been issues in our relationship

over the last 12 months that

happens in relationships

between nations from time to

time, the important things is

that you work through those

questions. REPORTER:... The assurances that the sought on US forces assurances that the President

sought on US forces in our country. Was that discussed talk to President Yudhoyono today? I had the opportunity to

about that yesterday and the

margins of the east Asia summit

of and I raised it in the context

of the bilateral meeting today,

President Yudhoyono certainly

understands that this is a step

forward in our defence cooperation with the United

States . We are a long time

ally of the United States, ally of the United States, that this step forward in our

defence cooperation is not

aimed at any nation in our

region, and that

available to us the ability to meet regional contingencies,

additionally meet reamal contingencies including north-west disasters in our region. REPORTER: The lawyers

for the young boy were hoping

that you would ask President

Yudhoyono to expedite his return to Australia. Did you you consider that

appropriate? This matter is

returning to court as soon as

the 25th of November and in those circumstances, this those circumstances, this is a

very sensitive question that needs

needs Indonesian law clearly

applies, this is a very

sensitive question and I don't

view it appropriate for me

publicly or at any other time to be speculating or about those legal proceedings to be speculating or talking

and their and their potential Tony Abbott says outcomes. The Opposition Leader

have used the meeting to Tony Abbott says the PM should

negotiate a new immigration policy. Obviously it's very important for the Australian PM

to talk regularly with the President of President of Indonesia, but

these talks should not just be

photo opportunities for the PM.

They've got to They've got to have an

important domestic outcome for

Australians. The PM should be

the doing much more to revitalise

the live cattle trade which she

closed down and the PM should

be doing much more to stop the

flow of boats. Now, we all know

that border protection has just been one been one disaster after another

for this Government and this

PM. And if the PM does not emerge from these President Yudhoyono with a new

deal to stop the boats, well

they will have been a failure.

They will have been just so

much window dressing. What

we've seen from the PM over the

last few weeks is an attempt

out-Rudd Kevin Rudd, it's not

good enough. If these talks

don't produce concrete outcomes

for Australia, they are just so

much prime ministerial

travelling around the world to avoid her has died after Friday's nursing home fire in Sydney's

north-west. Police say the 79-year-old woman died today in Liverpool Hospital. Liverpool Hospital. The NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has now

asked for a report about asked for a report about police

checks on staff in this State's

nursing homes. The thieftd-year-old nurse Roger Dean has been charged with four

counts of murder over Friday's

fire at Quakers Hill. With

several people still in

hospital, police say there may be further charges but they're refusing to confirm newspaper man charged about an unrelated

matter several hours before the fire started. One of the unions representing Qantas workers appears not closer appears not closer to striking a dealing with the airline to resolve

resolve its industrial dispute. Fair Work Australia gave the

parties 21 days to sort parties 21 days to sort out their differences with the deadline due at deadline due at midnight tomorrow. But the Transport

Workers Union's Tony Sheldon

has skeweded Qantas has skeweded Qantas of failing

to negotiate in good faith and

says more time is needed. They have gone their claim to what they put to

the workforce only the day

before the AGM which they

withdraw at the last minute.

I'm putting to Alan Joyce and

Lee Clifford the CEO, give Lee Clifford the CEO, give it another 21 days and start

negotiating in good faith. Not bad faith, where you stood over the judiciary, the travelling

public and the Australian

workforce just so workforce just so you could outsource their jobs overseas

and within this country at

hundreds of dollars a week

less. Stand up for Australia,

greed. The company has made it very clear in the negotiations

that they are five months

backwards. We heard Alan Joyce

make a comment that he thought

we were close on Monday. we were close on Monday. Well,

he's obviously either not

reading the tea leaves or has

been lied to by his own management or he's telling the

Australian public yet another

porky pie. Because as far as we

can see, Alan Joyce is about all spin and no substance. The Transport Minister Anthony should be reached without the

intervention of Fair Work Australia. I won't make bold

predictions, what I will say is that there is no reason in my

view why Qantas view why Qantas management and

the unions can't get this deal done and can't get it done

before tomorrow. There is

discussions today, I know, with the licenced engineers and

Qantas will be further

discussions tomorrow, with the

pilots and the Transport

Workers Union. What I would say

is what I've said from the beginning of this process - all

parties no ed feed to recognise

they have a common interest, the common interest between Qantas

Qantas as a successful company and its workforce. And they need to act like adults and get

this done. Of course, because

of the Fair Work

of the Fair Work legislation,

if they can't get a deal done,

then of course it goes to Fair

Work Australia and that might

produce an outcome that is one

in which all the parties necessarily agree. So they have

an incentive. Their destiny

with within their own control

over the next 36 hours and

call upon them to negotiate in good faith to get an

outcome. Many international

know that there have not been

activated. The legal system

Overwhelming. Check mate, game

over. Seen here in August, he cameras to dispel claims of his capture by anti-Gaddafi

fighters. It's an entirely

different scenario today. He is

now in their grasp. Much othe

didn't seem to matter. The more

the crowds got. This footage

producer shows one of the many police vehicles destroyed by

the demonstrators after hours

of violent clashes. Earlier in the day police moved into Cairo's Tahrir Square or

Libation square to clear protesters staging a sit in

the crowds leading to in the square and surrounding

they'll do. It's against they'll do. It's against this

welcome mat is out but welcome mat is out but tourism operators are struggling.

I've been here for 17 years and I haven't seen it this

tough in that time. It's a bit

of a broken record at the

moment. Daily stories about market volatility because of

concerns about Europe. concerns about Europe. 50

occasion ally a new country is

named as suspect. This week it

was France and the whole

vicious circle turns vicious circle turns another revolution. The consensus reaction is to sell everything

that is not nailed down. But

are things really that bad? I spoke to a global investor with a clear view - Magellan Financial Group's Hamish Douglass: Hamish cialg it

looks pretty bad. What should we

we do? Run away and hide our

cash or hold our breath and

jump in To be honest with you

we're relaxed what about's

going on at the moment. That

may surprise you, the may surprise you, the epi

centre of the uncertainty is

really a judgment call is is Europe really going to

collapse? Is it going to have a

financial Armageddon event and

we think the risk of that is

very low at the moment. Why is that? Why don't you think there

will be a default? It is our judgment that the Germans judgment that the Germans are

actually fully in control of this situation. At the moment.

The markets don't like it, they

would like an instant solution

and there are some instant

solutions that are being solutions that are being pushed

by the French and actually by the UK, being pushed by the

Americans to try and put an end

to this uncertainty. But I

don't think the Germans want an

end to tonne certainty at the moment. They don't want to moment. They don't want to pull the triggers to take the

pressure off countries like

Greece and Italy and Spain and

even France for forcing through measures that are going to measures that are going to put

Europe on a more stable
