Jakarta (VNA) – The Australian and Indonesian governments have agreed to boost cyber security partnership, targeting preventing financial resources related to terrorism.

The agreement was reached at a meeting between Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Wiranto, head of the Indonesian delegation, and Attorney-General George Brandis, head of the Australian delegation, in Jakarta on February 2.

The two sides called on all countries to step up collaboration to prevent terrorism, violence, and extremism to look towards a safer world.

Within the framework of the security dialogue, the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Center (AUSTRAC) and its Indonesian counterpart centre (PPATK) signed an agreement to focus on the prevention of terrorism financing and money laundering.

Both centers will launch a new project later this year to help Indonesia enhance its capacity to cope with the increasing number of online threats.-VNA
