H.E. Nguyen Quoc Dung, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs, Socialist Republic of Vietnam opened the event, ‘Focused Collaboration in Support of the ASEAN-Institute for Peace and Reconciliation’, together with H.E. Lim Jock Hoi, the Secretary-General of ASEAN and Mr. Khaled Khiari, Assistant Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs and Peace Operations Assistant of the United Nations.

“The ASEAN success story lies in its ability to help maintain regional peace and stability over the past decades. It has also actively reached out to contribute to global efforts for peace and security, including through participation in UN peace keeping operations. With two ASEAN Member States, Indonesia and Vietnam sitting in the UNSC in 2020, ASEAN can do more to synergize ASEAN’s regional efforts with the global cause led by the UN to ensure that international peace and security are secured and sustained amid fast-changing and complex developments. As the ASEAN Chair and non-permanent member of the UNSC in 2020, Vietnam is committed to doing its utmost in this regard”, stated Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Dung.

Noting that strengthening cooperation with regional organisations is of priority importance for the United Nations to comprehensively address complex challenges to global peace and security, Assistant Secretary-General Khiari said: “As ASEAN has become increasingly engaged in advancing global and regional approaches to peace and security, the ASEAN-Institute for Peace and Reconciliation has emerged as its first formalised platform for conflict prevention, including research in experiences of conflict resolution in the region.” Assistant Secretary-General Khiari added: “The United Nations is looking forward to further close collaboration with the ASEAN-IPR, including with its newly-established ASEAN Women’s Peace Registry.”

H.E. Lim Jock Hoi, the Secretary-General of ASEAN highlighted in his remarks on “the importance of collaboration in prevention of conflict through international diplomacy, research, knowledge sharing and networking which should be further advocated in forums such as this. As Southeast Asia lies in the center of one of the most dynamic regions in the world, ASEAN will continue to promote peace and stability as well as economic prosperity in the region and continue to reinforce the ASEAN-centered regional architecture.”

The 7th ASEAN-UN Workshop – 5th Regional Dialogue on Political-Security Cooperation (AURED V) is jointly organised by the Foreign Ministry of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the United Nations Departments of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs and Peace Operations.
