ASEAN net is on track

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

TOP govern­ment and po­lice of­fi­cials have backed tough se­cu­rity mea­sures which will be im­posed on Syd­ney ahead of this week­end’s ASEAN sum­mit.

As re­vealed in yes­ter­day’s Daily Tele­graph, se­cu­rity will tighten as Prime Min­is­ter Mal­colm Turn­bull hosts South­east Asian lead­ers on Satur­day and Sun­day for a spe­cial sum­mit to dis­cuss re­gional se­cu­rity, eco­nomic ties and counter-ter­ror­ism mea­sures.

NSW Po­lice Min­is­ter Troy Grant said the beefed-up po­lice pow­ers “strike the right bal­ance’’ be­tween ef­fec­tive polic­ing and not dis­rupt­ing res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to the Har­bour City this week­end.
