French Republic to Strengthen Friendly Relations and Cooperation with ASEAN

H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN, congratulated and welcomed the accreditation of H.E. Mrs. Corrine Breuzé, Ambassador of the French Republic to ASEAN, and expressed appreciation to the desire of the Government of the French Republic to strengthen friendly relations and cooperation with ASEAN and ASEAN Member States. He further reassured Ambassador Breuzé that he and the ASEAN Secretariat looked forward to promoting the relationship.

SG Minh expressed appreciation for the concrete cooperation activities that France initiated with ASEAN, including the ASEAN-Europe Business Round Table, training programme for young ASEAN diplomats, capacity building programme for Myanmar’s ASEAN Chair in 2014 and capacity building programme for climate change negotiation. He further suggested exploring practical cooperation in the fields that France has expertise and interest for mutual benefits, which would also serve as the foundation for closer relationship. These may include support for the areas under the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity, ASEAN Community building—particularly narrowing development gap, and Initiative for ASEAN Integration Work Plan II.

Ambassador Breuzé stated that the Government of France regards ASEAN as an important regional grouping and is interested in pursuing greater cooperation with ASEAN. The political will is reflected in France’s accession to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC) and France’s support for the Southeast Asia Nuclear Weapons Free Zone (SEANWFZ). France’s relation with ASEAN is also built upon the strong foundation of its relations with individual ASEAN Member States.

Ambassador Breuzé informed that H.E. Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the French Republic is expected to pay an official visit to the ASEAN Secretariat and meet with Secretary-General Minh in early August 2013. They looked forward to the important visit, which would provide an impetus for further enhancing ASEAN-France friendly relationship and cooperation. Furthermore, they exchanged views on the recent developments in ASEAN as well as regional and international issues of interest.

Ambassador Breuzé presented her Letter of Credence as Ambassador of the French Republic to ASEAN to SG Minh yesterday at the ASEAN Secretariat.

As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
