“If we also add the bilateral meetings, this of course will continue to increase, so far there are already thirteen bilateral meetings. So you can imagine, Mr. President has to chair 25 meetings in three days, twelve of which are summits,” Retno said, Friday (09/01).

The meeting consisted of the plenary session and retreat of the 43rd ASEAN Summit, the 26th ASEAN-China Summit, the 24th ASEAN-Republic of Korea Summit, the 26th ASEAN-Japan Summit, and the 11th ASEAN-United States Summit, the ASEAN-Canada Summit, the 26th ASEAN Plus Three Summit, the 20th ASEAN-India Summit, the 3rd ASEAN-Australia Summit, the 18th East Asia Summit, and the 13th ASEAN-United Nations Summit.

“We invite IORA and PIF since one of ASEAN priorities this time is a peaceful, stable, prosperous, inclusive Indo Pacific. So when we talk about the Indo Pacific, there are representatives of South Pacific and Indian Ocean Rim that we must start to embrace. And at the Summit, there will be cooperation between the ASEAN Secretariat and the IORA and PIF,” Retno remarked. (PR of Ministry of Communication and Informatics/UN) (GWH/LW)
