Attacks: Oz assures India of action


Visiting Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith said this during the second foreign minister’s framework dialogue with his Indian counterpart S M Krishna. The meeting marked the start of a five-day visit by Smith, the second in a year.

A joint statement released after the meeting said the Australian federal and provincial governments were “determined to address concerns about the safety and well-being of Indian students in Australia.”

Smith said Australia had a “zero-tolerance approach towards violence and racial prejudice.”
