Europeans grappling with mass migration from Libya were seeking information about Australia's controversial success in stopping asylum seeker boats reaching its shores, the Australian prime minister said Monday.Australia deters asylum seekers by refusing to allow those attempting to arrive by boat to ever settle in Australia.Since Abbott's coalition was elected in September 2013, Australian Navy and Customs boats have routinely turned asylum seeker boats back to Indonesia.Indonesia complains that sending foreigner to its shores is disrespectful of Indonesian sovereignty, but few of the boats are now intercepted in the waters north of Australia.
