Duterte calls for united ASEAN, collective success

Duterte calls for united ASEAN, collective success

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, meeting with North Korea's top diplomat during the ASEAN foreign ministers meeting in Manila on August 5, urged Pyongyang to "maintain calm" in the aftermath of the United Nations vote.

However, he added, "Frankly speaking, I was disappointed when I heard your remarks in the EAS foreign ministers' meeting today".

The Kono statement represents the sincerity of Japan, Wang said.

The role of the new government in the Philippines under President Rodrigo Duterte, who rejected Obama's war-mongering and has joined China's Silk Road process, has created general unity in ASEAN regarding China.

The documents detailing the new framework have not been distributed to the public due to the sensitive provisions they contain, and when asked by journalists about their contents, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi was evasive, saying: "we don't want to prejudge the result of those negotiations".

The 10 foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations also mentioned late Sunday in their 46-page statement a vague reference to an global arbitration ruling past year that invalidated China's historical claims to virtually all of the strategic waterway.

Ri thanked Cayetano and said he understood ASEAN's position.

The Philippines won a landmark decision at the United Nations-backed arbitral tribunal but China has repeatedly rejected the decision.

The stand is a reference to Chinese structures over disputed islands, including Mischief Reef, which is contested by China and the Philippines, and Woody Island, which is contested by China and Vietnam, among others.

Fourth, to accelerate the implementation of the outcomes on upgrading China-ASEAN Free Trade Area and jointly safeguard the global free trade regime.

There was no mention at all of the ruling a year ago of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Hague on the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) which rejected China's claim to sovereignty over most of the South China Sea.

"However, there is sentiment across ASEAN that for this engagement to be truly productive and beneficial not just to ASEAN but to our region and the world, we need to ensure that there is a mutual openness and communication amongst us", Cayetano said. As in past criticisms, they did not cite China by name. "It doesn't mean we're giving up with legally binding". "We will decide what is good for us, what strategy is good for us, because we are a sovereign nation".

In July, Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop criticized China's reclamation in the South China Sea and urged all claimants to respect worldwide law.

South Korea's top diplomat has strongly condemned North Korea's repeated provocations and urged the reclusive state to give up its nuclear weapons program and "come out to the road toward peace and stability", Seoul's foreign ministry said Tuesday.
