Australia 'not doing its bit' on people smuggling
Indonesia is unwilling to cooperate in efforts to www.abercrombie-dublin.com
combat people smuggling because Australia is not doing its part, former immigration minister Philip Ruddock says.
In comments that will be aired on Tuesday baseball caps
night, Mr Ruddock said the number of asylum seekers heading to Australia would continue to increase unless the government took a tougher stance.
Mr Ruddock, who was immigration minister for seven years in the Howard government, said Indonesian officials had complained about a lack of effort on Australia's part towards stopping people smuggling.
The comments come less than a week after the coalition announced its asylum seeker policy, including the restoration of temporary protection visas and a return to the Pacific Solution.
A coalition government would also turn back asylum seeker boats.
"The Indonesians have been unwilling to cooperate and one of the reasons was because they feel Australia has not been playing its part," Mr Ruddock said during a debate on asylum seekers on SBS's Insight program.
"We get good cooperation from the Indonesians and they operate with our police forces and they're doing a lot to disrupt activity," Senator Evans said.
"The point is they have said they cappelli uomo
will not have us turning boats back into their territorial waters. They see it as a sovereignty issue, they're not interested timberland outlet
in that proposition."
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott last Thursday said that under a coalition government, asylum seeker boats would be intercepted, whether in international waters or Australian territory, and returned to their point of departure or a third country.
