ASEAN security talks

Enhanced regional security co-operation would be at the fore of discussions between AS­­E­AN and so-called Plus countries’ defence ministers at the ADSOM-plus meeting on Thursday, senior defence officials said yester­day.

Speaking in Siem Reap ahead of the meeting between defence of­­ficials of the 11 ASEAN coun­tries and the eight “Plus coun­tries”, Ministry of Defence Sec­­­retary of State General Neang Phat said 118 senior ASEAN defence officials had met yesterday and drafted concept notes and a joint declaration for ADSOM-plus consideration.

“This is necessary for closer co- operation be­t­ween the ASEAN states and the Plus countries,” Neang Phat said.
