Brunei Darussalam —Dumating na ang mga heads of state kabilang na si Pangulong Benigno Aquino III sa International Convention Center kaugnay sa pagdaraos ng 23rd Association of Southeast Asian Nations o ASEAN Summit sa Brunei Darussalam.

Unang hinarap ng Pangulo ang dialogue partner na si Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Ang tema ng ASEAN ngayong taon na “Our People, Our Future Together” ay nakatutok sa pagsulong at nalalapit na implementasyon ng “ASEAN Community 2015”.

Layon ng One Community na buksan ang free trade sa sampung bansa na miyembro ng ASEAN.

Inaasahang tatalakayin rin sa dalawang araw na summit ang territorial disputes, maritime at security concerns ng bawat bansang kasapi nito.

Ayon kay Permanent Representative of the Philippines to ASEAN Ambassador Elizabeth Buensuceso, ilalatag ng Pangulong Aquino ang mga adbokasiya nito gaya ng pagsunod sa rule of law, at pagkakaroon ng mapayapang kasunduan sa mga pinag-aagawang isla sa West Philippine Sea.

“President Aquino is expected to relay a number of advocacies such as following the rule of law and the peaceful settlement of territorial disputes.”

Inaasahang tatalakin rin ng pangulo ang pagsulong ng kapakanan ng mga migranteng Pilipino, social protection para sa mga kabataan at kababaihan, disaster management, edukasyon at maritime cooperation.

Maliban sa summit, siyam pang pulong kasama ang mga bansang China, Japan, Korea at Amerika ang dadaluhan ni Pangulong Aquino.

Isa naman sa pinaka-aabangan sa Brunei summit ang dayalogo ng mga bansang kasapi sa ASEAN at China na kakatawanin ni Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Samantala, hinigpitan na rin ang seguridad sa paligid ng International Convention Center sa pagsisimula ng ASEAN Summit. (UNTV News)
