Defence minister at ASEAN meeting

Minister of Defence Tea Banh is in Vietnam this week to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Defence Ministers Meeting, which will focus in part on discussions surrounding ADMM-Plus, a framework being developed to include non-ASEAN countries in regional security talks, officials said. The meeting, the highest-level defence summit in the region, is scheduled to last until Wednesday, said Defence Ministry spokesman Chhum Socheat. He added that the ASEAN defence ministers would also discuss regional military cooperation more broadly. “Military cooperation is very important, as it would help each other in sharing experiences as well as providing military training to each other,” he said. Cambodia is slated to host a meeting of ASEAN defence ministers in 2012, he said.
