Mr Abbott telephoned Indonesia’s president Joko Widodo last night to appeal for clemency for convicted Australian drug smugglers Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran.
He said he would not reveal the details of the conversation.
“Suffice to say that the president absolutely understands our position and I think he is carefully considering Indonesia’s position,” he said.
“I don’t want to raise hope that might turn out to be dashed.
“I don’t want to reflect on Indonesia or my friend, president Joko Widodo.
“I want to ensure that as far as is humanly possible I am speaking out for Australians and for Australian values. But I’ve also got to respect and defend Australia’s friendships, and one of our very best friendships is with Indonesia.”
