  • Description

    Foreign Ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) called for a reassessment of ASEAN's place in the region following communist military victories in Indochina.

    The Ministers expressed their views at the three-day annual ASEAn conference, which started in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday (13 May).

    Major differences emerged in the Ministers' opening statements after Malaysian Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Tun Abdul Razak began the talks with an offer of friendship to indochina and an invitation to the communist countries to join ASEAn in securing regional peace.

    The Philippines Foreign Secretary, Carlos Romulo, spoke of a possible realignment of forces in Southeast Asia following the American withdrawal from Indochina.

    But Singapore's Foreign Minister, S. Rajaratnam, took a different view, saying ASEAN's assessment of policies should not be based on the "presumption" that the United States and other powers were not withdrawing from the region.
