Indonesia keeps enhancing cooperation on defense and refugee with other countries to create a better multilateral relation, an official told Xinhua in an exclusive interview on Wednesday.

Arief Havas Oegroseno, director general for Law and International Agreement in the Foreign Ministry, said that following defense cooperation with some countries, the Indonesian government and parliament are now discussing about ratifying defense cooperation between Indonesia, Russia and Brunei.

"Such dialog process between the government and the parliament must be passed. It's the same with other cooperation with Australia, technical cooperation with the United States and patrol cooperation with the Philippines. Yes, we have some technical cooperation with several countries," said Oegroseno.

He said that defense cooperation between Indonesia and other countries grows year by year.

"For example, we have such cooperation with Malaysia and Singapore on join patrol and with Vietnam on military. Yes, there is progress," he said.

Related to Australia's plan to establish a regional processing center for asylum seekers in Timor Leste, Oegroseno said that countries in the region continue to have dialogue under the umbrella of the Bali Process.
