H.E. Marty Natalegawa told radio FM102 reporter of Women’s Media Center of Cambodia, “The Cambodia has been a strong chairman.” “I am looking forward to the success of ASEAN summit in Phnom Pench because Cambodia have clear stand and agenda for the summit in November 2012,” added Marty.
He said like this after ASEAN can’t push joint statement Communiqué when Cambodia, Chair of ASEAN Foreign Ministry Meeting (AMM) since July, whether ASEAN’s six-point principles on the East Sea at a press briefing in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on July 20. So no one is sure if ASEAN will fail again for ASEAN Summit in November 2012.
ASEAN cannot push forward a joint statement communiqué because the Philippines, Vietnam and many ASEAN members have disputed over South China Sea. Cambodia, Chair of this year’s ASEAN meeting, stated that ASEAN is not a court to judge which country lose or win.
