Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga affirmed in recent years, ASEAN has made joint effort to strengthen peace and stability in the region, contributing significantly to the formation of the ASEAN Community in 2015.
ASEAN is also working closely with partners to develop mechanisms for conflict prevention, peaceful settlement of disputes in the region, including the Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC). In addition, ASEAN has always attached great importance to promoting cooperation with the UN, which has involved strengthening the peacekeeping operations of the United Nations, specifying the ASEAN-United Nations Comprehensive Partnership, promoting cooperation between the two Secretariats.
Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga shared experience in building ASEAN community, especially the “ASEAN Way”. According to the ambassador, to better cope with new challenges, it would be important to build consensus, listen to the views of stakeholders, respect the basic principles of international law, including respect sovereignty, territorial integrity, peaceful settlement of disputes.

ASEAN said that the report and recommendations of the Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the direction of UN activities on the occasion of 70th  anniversary of the establishment of the United Nations should respect and make specific recommendations on strengthening cooperation with regional organizations, as well as promote dialogues between regional organizations with the United Nations and between these organizations together.

Building a peaceful and stable environment in the region to help member countries firmly maintain independence, sovereignty and sustainable development has been reflected in almost all of ASEAN’s documents,

Conflict prevention, management and settlement are one of the key integral components of the ASEAN Political-Security Community.

participating in resolving disputes and conflicts in the East Sea within the scope of work is both a responsibility and an ensurance of ASEAN’s common interest.

Among claimant states and parties of sovereignty in the East Sea, four ASEAN member countries including Viet Nam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei are engaged in direct disputes in these waters. Other countries like Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and Cambodia which are lying on the coastal areas of the East Sea share great strategic interests in economic, free trade, security, and national defense.

once disputes in the East Sea escalate, they will not only threaten national interests of ASEAN coastal countries, but also aggravate cooperation and development environment of the whole bloc, especially ASEAN’s relations with external partners. Southeast Asian countries, particularly claimants, willy-nilly, should spend more budgets on national defense.

Another issue of no less importance is ASEAN is striving to realize ASEAN Community with three pillars, including the ASEAN Political-Security Community (ASPC) by the end of 2015. Contents and methods to build the ASEAN Political-Security Community like “developing and sharing code of conduct” and cooperation, search and establishment of mechanisms to “prevent conflicts” in ASEAN and between ASEAN and external partners are identified in the 2004 Program of Action and the 2009 ASEAN Political-Security Community Blueprint.

This heightens resistance of ASEAN and of each member country in face of increasing geopolitical pressure due to strategic competition among big powers in the region and at the same time raises attractiveness and efficiency of ASEAN and member countries in expanding cooperation with external partners

it is possible to say that ASEAN’s involvement in settling contradictions and preventing conflicts in the East Sea is both responsibility and strategic interests of this organization.

This is also one of the tests to the realization of ASEAN Community including the ASEAN Political-Security Community.

Nevertheless, more than ever before, ASEAN should be more politically determined and responsible to early develop a Code of Conduct, including strict and concrete legal stipulations.
