Indonesia slams Aussie PM comment

- +

JAKARTA — Indonesia's president has stepped up the pressure on Australia over allegations its neighbour tapped calls from his phone, saying the action was deplorable and will lead to a review of cooperation agreements. 

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in a Bahasa language tweet confirmed by his office said "I also deplore the statement of Australian Prime Minister who underestimates the wiretapping of Indonesia, without sense of guilt."

A later English tweet used the word regret instead of deplore, and said the statement "belittled this tapping matter on Indonesia, without any remorse."
