ASEAN, China need to work together to maintain peace in the region: Ng Eng Hen

SINGAPORE: ASEAN and China need to keep working together to maintain peace and stability in the region, said Singapore Defence Minister Dr Ng Eng Hen on Friday (Oct 16).

He said this at the ASEAN-China Defence Ministers' Informal Meeting in Beijing.

At the meeting, the ASEAN ministers welcomed China's continued engagement of the region. The ministers also discussed regional security issues such as counter-terrorism and transnational crimes. They acknowledged the need for greater cooperation and communication to address these challenges.

Dr Ng also welcomed greater ASEAN-China cooperation through ASEAN-led platforms such as the ASEAN Defence Ministers' Meeting-Plus, adding that Singapore will carry out its role as coordinator of ASEAN-China Dialogue Relations to deepen the trust between ASEAN and China.

Dr Ng is attending the Informal Meeting from Oct 15 to 16 at the invitation of Chinese State Councilor and Minister of National Defense General (GEN) Chang Wanquan.
