In 2014, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa signed the joint agreement establishing a code of conduct between the Republic of Indonesia and Australia to implement the agreement between the Republic of Indonesia and Australia on the framework for security cooperation.  This agreement, which was recognized as separate from the Treaty of Lombok, was not a traditional defence treaty and did not contain the same content as the old contracts or the 2012 DCA. Instead, the common agreement acted as a set of rules that both nations would abide by under the Treaty of Lombok. It was considered that the joint agreement was reached as a result of an investigation conducted in 2013, which revealed Australia`s espionage activities in 2009 and which targeted the Indonesian President at the time, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, since the agreement contains the clause that „the parties will not use any of their conclusions, including surveillance capabilities or other resources , in a way that harms the interests of the parties.“  Indonesia proclaimed independence after the end of World War II, an independence that Australia did not recognize until 1947. Australia remained cautious about communist influence in Indonesia, especially with Sukarno, Indonesia`s first president. Relations between the two nations after Suharto`s succession to the presidency in 1967 improved considerably. Suharto exercised a strongly anti-communist attitude at the beginning of his reign, a position that was widely supported by the successive Australian government.  Suharto was in office for 30 years, until 1998. The extent of the cooperation of this agreement is as follows: Defence cooperationIn recognition of the long-term mutual benefits of the closest professional cooperation between their armed forces1.
