Australia had to apologies to Indonesia as it breached the territory borders during a navy operation when some boats carrying asylum seekers had to turn back as there were some tensions towards Jakarta because of their new sovereign border policies.


The Australian Immigration minister Scott Morrison said that one boat had by mistake entered Indonesian waters several times and the matter will be reviewed.

An apology has been sent and we regret these incidents stated Morrison. At the news conference Morrison also stated that the government of Australia will continue implementing policies to stop illegal boats from entering the country.

Indonesia has warned Australia that they would be increasing their naval patrols and has called upon Australia to not carry out such operations which risks incursions.

Indonesia is not liking that A vessels are violating their territorial integrity and sovereignty.

Boat people was a term which was created in 1970s. In 2013 the government announced that all asylum seekers would be sent to Papua New Guinea. All refugees would also be settled there.

Tony Abbott, the new prime minister made a pledge to stop all boats from entering Australia. Operation Sovereign Borders has bee introduced which sends all boats carrying asylum seekers back.

In an official communication to Canberra the UN refugee agency has questioned about this policy.

Mr Morrison did not respond on this if boats were being turned back and said he could not provide any details as this would be helping the people smugglers who are getting people illegally to the country.
