The event reviewed and discussed regional and global issues of shared concern and made preparations for the ASEAN–EU Post Ministerial Conference scheduled for August.

Mr. Dung asked the EU help to ensure ASEAN’s timely and even access to vaccines, assist technological transfer and vaccine production in the region, while coordinating to boost economic recovery and growth, and green, sustainable development.

Reaffirming ASEAN’s principled stance on the East Sea, Deputy Minister Dung urged the EU to continue supporting ASEAN’s efforts to maintain peace, security, and safety in the East Sea, effectively realize the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC), and promptly complete negotiations on an effective Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC) that is in line with international law and the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
