New visions proposed at 47th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting

 NAYPYITAW, Aug 8 -- Thailand has proposed to the 47th ASEAN Foreign Minister Meeting in Naypyitaw that the people of each member state should act as the heart of ASEAN cooperation.
Acting Thai Minister of Foreign Affairs Sihasak Phuangketkeao, Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs, was presented at the 47th ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, hosted by Myanmar in Naypyitaw, the capital,
The ASEAN foreign ministers made a courtesy call on Myanmar President Thein Sein this morning, before joining the meeting of ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR).
The morning meeting with AICHR focused on the report presented by the agency on its operations during the past year, as well as the revision of the agency's framework five years after its establishment, in order to ensure that all operations are in line with ASEAN's current framework.
The meeting then touched upon the creation of a new vision for ASEAN after the ASEAN Community (AC) formation at the end of next year.
The dialogue between the ministers also follows up on the operations of the three ASEAN pillars, which revealed that another 20 per cent of work must be completed for the pillars to be successful, while the meeting agreed that the people of each member state should become the hub of cooperation within the ASEAN region even more.
During the conference Thailand suggested five steps for ASEAN to maintain its lead within the region after the AC integration, which include, creating unity within ASEAN, becoming a leading mediator in dealing with issues that could affect the region's stability and security, promoting sustainable relationships with world powers, having a stronger and more active role on various international platforms, and acquiring stronger roles in bringing world issues into focus.
Besides, today is also the 47th anniversary of the founding of ASEAN with the Bangkok Declaration in 1967, in which Thailand was among the five countries to establish the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, before the joining of five other member states in 1999.
The goals of ASEAN are to promote better understanding among countries within the same region, as well as to create political and economic stability, and creating equality and benefit for the populace of the association as a whole. (MCOT online news)
