Indonesia's FM challenges Australia to settle more refugees



 
As Australia's Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, arrives in Indonesia today ahead of a people-smuggling, trafficking and transnational crime summit in Bali, Retno Marsudi told Fairfax's Indonesia correspondent that Australia should do more.
 
Ms Marsudi said Indonesia hosted more than 13,000 thousand refugees and asylum seekers that are waiting to be resettled and took on 2,000 more from Bangladesh and Myanmar.
 
She said she hopes Australia will be more receptive to these migrants.
