Cambodia is 6th member to ratify the document

On Friday (April 18), Cambodia became the sixth country to ratify the Asean Charter after Singapore, Brunei Darussalam, Laos, Malaysia and Vietnam.

Cambodian Ambassador to Indonesia Khem Bunneang on behalf of his government handed documents on his country's ratification of the Charter to Asean Secretary General Surin Pitsuwan at the Asean Secretariat in Jakarta on Friday at a ceremony attended also by the ambassadors of other Asean member countries to Indonesia.

Surin praised Cambodia as one of  Asean’s youngest members for being very active and having a strong commitment to accelerating Asean’s regional integration.

There remain four other member countries which have yet to ratify the charter, namely Indonesia, the Philippines, Myanmar and Thailand.

Surin was optimistic the four states will soon ratify the Charter, which was signed on  November 20, 2007 by the leaders of  the group’s 10 member countries at the 13th Asean Summit in Singapore coinciding with Asean’s 40th anniversary.
