A hacking group called Anonymous Indonesia claims to have attacked over 170 Australian sites, following reports of Australian spying.
On Friday, Indonesia summoned Australia’s ambassador amid reports that its Jakarta embassy was used as part of a US-led spying network.
The reports were based on a US National Security Agency document leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The allegations caused anger in Indonesia, which is a key ally and trading partner of Australia.
The Australian government has declined to comment on the reports, saying it does not comment on intelligence matters.
Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa told reporters on Monday: “Enough is enough”.
“While [the US and Australia] are not able to confirm or deny past activities, at least they should be able, and I’m making a public expectation here, I think they should be able to say henceforth they are not going to do it anymore,” he said.
“In the absence of assurances that such [spying] activities never took place, then of course we must assume that such activities are taking place, and draw our own conclusion in terms of their view of Indonesia as a partner,” he added.
