Indonesia President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was teaching reporters in the country how to eavesdrop on his phone calls with Australia Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
According to the BBC News, "Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono allowed journalists to listen in to a conversation with Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Reporters were apparently in the same room as Mr Yudhoyono during the call and one of them recorded the exchange."
Indonesian reporters could listen into Abbott's phone calls and write 'breaking news' stories about Aussie-Indonesia relations even before Abbott would hang up the phone.
As reported by the BBC, "Indonesian officials said the whole incident was the result of a misunderstanding. The two leaders will meet this week, with tensions still high over claims of Australian spying."
President Yudhoyono and PM Abbott addressed highly-sensitive topics in their phone conversations.
