The 7th Coordinating Conference for the ASEAN Political-Security Community (ASCCO) took place in Jakarta, Indonesia on August 20 under the chair of Deputy Secretary-General of ASEAN for the ASEAN Political-Security Community (APSC) Nyan Lynn.

The conference reviewed the implementation of APSC’s blueprint, which aims to ensure that all activities are responsive to the needs and priorities of ASEAN, basing on dynamic changes in the region and the world.

The review is particular important as there are only two more years to go until ASEAN is to complete its target to establish an ASEAN Community by 2015.

Nyan Lynn said that ASEAN Secretary General Le Luong Minh will report proposals made at the conference to leaders of the group’s member nations at the ASEAN Summit scheduled for October in Brunei.-VNA
