Regardless of the response to Mr Abbott's words on Australian support to the Indonesia people in the aftermath of the tsunami, the Australian Government has shown a desire to be a good neighbour to the Indonesian people.
If another tsunami occurred, Australia would be ready to move even before a request came from the Indonesian Government regardless of the outcome of the present sentencing issue. That makes us good neighbours.
The Australian Federal Police provided information that led to the original arrests. But Australia was totally excluded from any input to sentencing. That does not make good neighbours.
There is a two way process in the importance of granting favours between nations. Australia needs a favour from the Indonesian President Mr Widodo. The two nations will be neighbours until the end of the earth.
