Terrorists' Digital Messages Target of Southeast Asia-Australia Pact

20 March 2018

Australia and ASEAN countries have signed an agreement to cooperate on fighting violent extremism and terrorism financing.

Singaporean PM Lee said that while the Rohingya crisis was a "concern for all ASEAN countries", the grouping "is not able to intervene to force an outcome".

"For the South China Sea, I went around to friends - ASEAN defence ministers - so that each country that faces the South China Sea patrols up to 200 nautical miles, around 230 kilometres", Ryacudu said.

North Korea is pursuing its weapons programmes in defiance of U.N. Security Council sanctions and has boasted of its plans to develop a missile capable of hitting the USA mainland.

Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long, the current chair of ASEAN, said the bloc had been encouraged by negotiations for the spring summit and had "noted reports of North Korea's commitment to denuclearization and its pledge to refrain from further nuclear missile tests during this period".

The report also published extensive photos of a 40-minute get-together between Hun Sen and what it said were some 800 of his Cambodian supporters from Australia and New Zealand.

The issue came up in Mr Turnbull's private talks with Mr Joko on Saturday, where the Prime Minister commended the President for Indonesia's firm stance of freedom of navigation in the South China Sea.

Widespread apprehension over China's ambitions has helped Prime Minister Narendra Modi enhance political and economic ties with Southeast Asian economies under a policy known as "Act East".

China has also been rapidly increasingly its military deployment in the South China Sea. In a meeting earlier this month, Modi and Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang committed to more defense equipment deals and joint exploration in the worldwide waterway, prompting criticism from Beijing.

"You don't grow stronger by closing the door to other markets". We were also seated next to each other at the dinner just now. The same month, New Delhi also invited those politicians to a summit aimed at promoting maritime security. "We treat Asean and the centrality of Asean in the region with the greatest respect".

"While our nations are focused on countering the ongoing threat of terrorism domestically, it would be a mistake to approach the problem from a purely national perspective", he said.

The development of the ASEAN-Australia Digital Trade Standards Initiative will provide a framework to support the development, adoption and use of worldwide digital trade standards.

Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull hosts the ten ASEAN heads of government in Sydney today, in a special format of the organisation that includes active participation by Australia in this meeting, which is a "strategic partner" but a non-member.
