President Yudhoyono Lectures the Superpowers about the Importance of Cooperation

July 26, 2012 · No Comments

Speaking in June at the IISS Asia Security Summit, the Shangri-La Dialogue, Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono assessed the achievements of ASEAN to date, and urged collective efforts to achieve a “geopolitics of cooperation” for the future.  But, he noted, this would require the support of the United States and China:  ”Both the US and China have an obligation, not just to themselves, but to the rest of the region to develop peaceful cooperation.”  His argument is especially important in light of the collapse of the ASEAN foreign ministers’ meeting in Cambodia over differences in the South China Sea.
