is I am concerned about the

amount of time that has been taken

taken to ascertain the age of

some Indonesian minors. I do

remind that when we establish

people are minors that they are under age,

Indonesia. We do not seek to

charge and jail minors. But

there have been times where I

taken longer think ascertaining age has

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

to Indonesia as quickly as possible. There was no possible. There was no mention of the live cattle ban at all

President during my discussions with

circumstances of the

14-year-old boy here in Bali, I did thank President Yudhoyono for the care that Indonesian authorities have authorities have shown to

ensure that this young boy is kept separately, has ready

shown that degree of care and

Yudhoyono for that. On relationship with Indonesia, we Yudhoyono for that. On the

have a strong, positive relationship is our nearest neighbour, it is

so important to us, this partnership with Indonesia. We

take a view of it as a strategic partnership for our

two countries. Yes, there have two countries. Yes, there have

been issues in our relationship over the last 12 months over the last 12 months that

happens in relationships

between nations from time to

time. The important thing is that you work through those questions. President certainly understands that this questions. President Yudhoyono

is a step forward in defence cooperation with the

United States. We are a long

time ally of the United States,

that this step forward in our

defence cooperation is not

aimed at any nation in our

and a half. The PM says they discussion for about an hour

discussed everything from people smuggling to clemency

pleas for Australians locked up

in here for drug charges such

as Schapelle Corby and the Bali

about free trade and

negotiations between the two countries. Interestingly countries. Interestingly though

was no mention of the live PM Gillard saying

place for a while earlier this year on sending live cat toll

Indonesia. They did talk about

the announcement of the the announcement of the US

the troop deployment to Australia,

the plan to put up to 2500 US

troops based in Darwin, so very

close to Indonesia by 2017 and

then they talked on a number of

other topics too, so it really

is a wide ranging discussion

and they also made a couple of announcements about working

together on things like the

disaster recovery and those

sorts of issues. The

was that Australia is going to

give Indonesia four C 130

aircraft, so the big military

aircraft, the heavy lifting aircraft, they're going to

these to Indonesia to help with

disaster recovery. These are

planes that effectively, you

could say rusty old Australian

planes that we planes that we don't need

anymore. They're going to need some repairs, but Indonesia will get them um and running

they'll and they'll be used across Indonesia so that's one announcement. Julia Gillard

also announced a couple of other things including a

Australia's putting towards a million dollars that

disaster relief centre in Indonesia to try to facilitate

a regional agreement on taking

a regional response to

preparing for disasters and she also announced putting also announced putting some

money towards helping lift

people out of poverty. She said

that they should be able to

with the airline to resolve its industrial dispute. Fair Work

Australia gave the parties 21 days to sort out days to sort out their differences with the deadline

due at midnight tomorrow. But the Transport Workers Union's

Tony Sheldon has accused Qantas

of failing to negotiate in good

faith and saying nor time is needed. They

five months on their claim to

what they put to the workforce

only the day before the AGM

which they withdraw at the last

Mant minute. I've putting to

Alan Joyce and Leigh Clifford, 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

you could outsource their jobs overseas and within this country at hundreds of dollars

a week less. Stand up Australia, don't stand up for ourdown 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. Well, he's obviously

either not readling 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 Albanese says an agreement should 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

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, there'll

be further substitutions tomorrow with the pilots tomorrow with the pilots and the Transport Workers Union,

what I would say is what I've said from

process, all parties need to

recognise they have a common

interest, the common interest

between Qantas as a successful company and its

they need to act like adults

and get this done. Of course, because 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 Australia

the parties don't necessarily agree, so they have an incentive.Tary destiny incentive.Tary destiny is within their own control over

the next 36 hours and I'd call

upon them to negotiate in good

faith to get an outcome. Many
