Role Of Asean Related Agreement To Maintain Peace And Stability In This Region

On 22 July, the 10th ASEAN meeting plus three foreign ministers (ASEAN-3) was held in Phuket, Thailand. Foreign ministers expressed concern about the DPRK`s recent nuclear and missile tests and missile launches and urged the DPRK to respect the obligations under UN Security Council resolutions. They also suggested the rapid resumption of the six-party talks and the possible use of the ARF as a regional security forum with all participants in the six-party talks. On 8 March 2017, ASEAN expressed its deep concern at the DPRK`s ballistic missile launches in the early hours of 6 March 2017, reaffirming the importance of peace and security on the Korean peninsula and reaffirming its unconditional support for the peaceful denuclearization of the peninsula. The APSC Council was established and was tasked with coordinating regional efforts to accomplish pre-defined tasks and objectives, in accordance with the project schedule. The Council is also supported by the ASEAN Political Security Action Plan (ASCCO) Coordination Conference, which serves as a platform for harmonizing the “efforts of different sectoral bodies through the exchange of information, best practices and lessons learned from the implementation of the APSC plan” (ASEAN 2009, p. 15). On 24 July, the Democratic People`s Republic of Korea acceded to the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation (TAC) in Southeast Asia. The parties agree not to participate in an activity that poses a threat to the political and economic stability, sovereignty or territorial integrity of another party. The standard and value of non-interference in the affairs of another country in the region, known as the ASEAN Way, is one of the fundamental and binding principles of ASEAN that underlie the global security concept and the APSC alert plan. It is a concept of interstate relations and regional cooperation that avoids formal mechanisms and legal decision-making procedures and relies on Musyawarah (consultation) and Mufakat (consensus) to achieve collective goals (Acharya 1997). This is the general mode used by AMS to do its work. It requires a great deal of tolerance and patience between the Member States.

The decision-making process for ASEAN is therefore long and time-consuming Given the withdrawal of the United States from the 1972 Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM), ministers welcomed the signing on 24 May 2002 of the Treaty to Reduce the Strategic Offensive between the Russian Federation and the United States. They noted the importance of this treaty in contributing to long-term international balance, peace and security. They also called on the NWS to continue the dialogue in order to seek new ideas and new approaches to addressing the problem of nuclear disarmament. It seems that ASEAN prefers not to speak with a single regional voice when it comes to contentious issues concerning individual AMS, as in the case of the SCS dispute with the PRC, in order to maintain cordial relations between the parties and avoid hostilities between the Densadaans.
