Briefing on developments of ASEAN defence and military cooperation by ADMM+ Chairman

ASEAN Member States are moving forward with cooperation and integration to build Southeast Asia into a region of peace, stability and development. The ASEAN Charter coming into effect has ushered in a new era of regional cooperation that would lead to the creation of a strong ASEAN Community by 2015 with three pillars – Political-Security Community, Economic Community and Socio-Cultural Community. ASEAN has been also boosting its cooperation with external partners to enhance broader peace, stability and development.
