Prabowo Confirms Indonesia’s Commitment in ASEAN Defense Meeting

Prabowo attends ASEAN Defense Meeting

Indonesian Minister of Defence Prabowo Subianto has declared the country’s commitment to help build Southeast Asia’s security and reputation among other world regions at the ASEAN Defence Ministers’ Meeting (ADMM) retreat in Bangkok, Thailand.

“ASEAN holds large potential in natural wealth and is renowned as one of the world’s major global trade routes, proven by how the region has attracted the interests of global forces. However, the potential in Southeast Asia’s seas would be hard to develop and make use of if it isn’t guaranteed by the necessary protection from ASEAN members itself,” said Prabowo.

The former Indonesian army special forces (Kopassus) general called for members states to stay committed and connected to achieve collective welfare, avoid conflicts, and discordance.

The ASEAN Defense Ministers’ Meeting produced crucial multilateral partnerships in the form of; the Malacca Strait Patrol, the Sulu Sea and Sulawesi Trilateral Indomalphi, and ASEAN Direct Communication Infrastructure.
