This article discusses issues related to military relations between Indonesia and the U.S. By 2006 Indonesia's military relationship with the U.S. seems likely to be restored to full status. This is expected to be restored even sooner if the White House succeeds in getting American lawmakers to pass the relevant legislation before other Congressional matters get in the way. Since 1999 the U.S. has revived several joint military training programmes and has endorsed selective sales of equipment to Indonesia. Indonesian military personnel have taken part in counter-terrorism training in Washington D.C.
