Australia ends defence cooperation with Myanmar

Mar 08, 2021 17:45 IST | By AP

Australia has suspended its defense cooperation with Myanmar and is redirecting humanitarian aid because of the Southeast Asian nation's military takeover of the government and ongoing detention of an Australian citizen.

Foreign Minister Marise Payne said Monday that Australian diplomats only had access to economic policy adviser Sean Turnell twice since he was detained in early February.

She described the access as a "small amount of consular support."
