On top of determination and giving priority to community development programmes, the bloc has resiliently resolved internal conflicts and overcome outside challenges. Finding a common voice can break through any barriers and lead to a more united ASEAN in the future. 2012 was a challenging year for solidarity among ASEAN members. For the first time in its 45 years, at its Foreign Ministers' Meeting in July, ASEAN couldn't agree on a joint statement due to differences over the East Sea. But a week later, member nations reached a consensus on six principles concerning the East Sea, thanks to a tradition of solidarity and cooperation. It's easy to understand why, at a given moment, the 10 ASEAN member countries with their different histories, cultures, development levels, political and social regimes, and national interests, couldn't achieve unanimity. Nguyễn Tiến Minh, head of the ASEAN Department under the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry, says this is the biggest challenge for ASEAN, but it has jointly looked for measures to consolidate and maintain the solidarity so that these contradictions can't drive a wedge. "Following the failure at AMM 45 to ratify a joint communiqué, member nations understood that they might be heading toward a crisis. So as soon as Indonesia proposed six common principles, ASEAN countries agreed with little hesitation and took concrete actions to secure unity," Minh recalls. ASEAN members have agreed that maintaining peace, stability, and security in the East Sea is of significance for all countries in the region. Every member has agreed…... [read more]
