(Indonesian) House Speaker Tells Australia to Stop Avoiding Responsibility for Refugees Stranded in Indonesia

Most of the refugees are seeking to go to Australia, but they have been held back in Indonesia for years because Australia keeps denying its commitment to the 1951 Geneva Convention on the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, Bambang said.

Indonesia did not ratify the convention, but the country has gone above and beyond its responsibilities to take care of the refugees, he said.
