ASEAN is made up of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations
Addressing the two-day meeting, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar discussed
There is still a battle to be fought against Corona which must be faced together
India has pledged its full support for the creation of a strong, prosperous and integrated ASEAN.
External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar said this while addressing a conference of foreign ministers of 10 ASEAN countries. This organization is a fully recognized influential group in the Indo-Pacific region.
Addressing the two-day meeting, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said that a better connected India and ASEAN would be successful in promoting decentralized globalization and a flexible and reliable supply system. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is considered one of the most influential groups in the region. Its dialogue partners include India, USA, China, Japan and Australia.
Referring to the Koro epidemic, Jaishankar said, "It is not over yet." Together we have a long way to go and to recover from the epidemic. The foreign minister said geopolitical problems had made it more difficult to deal with the epidemic. We have to deal with it in Ukraine by dealing with the impact on development, food and energy security as well as prices of fertilizers and other commodities and the supply of logistics.
"Indo-ASEAN relations must answer to the world that we face," he said. ASEAN has always stood as a symbol of regionalism, multilateralism and globalization. Jaishankar said that ASEAN has successfully carved out a niche for itself in the region. It has laid the foundation for developing a strategic and economic base in the Indo-Pacific. He said that given the geopolitical challenges and uncertainties facing the world, the role of ASEAN today is perhaps more important than ever.
