The nomination comes amid a US push to boost relations with
Southeast Asia, which the Obama administration said had been
neglected.

HA this clearly US China Offensive Stratley Strategy.

Malaysia have been neutral so far. The Question is how long can we continue neutral.

Both Countries are our major trading partners.

Strong offense is the best defense.
If you live life being a LALANG or BARUA or BALACI as some would have called it, history will remember you as such

While proactive foreign policy is a must and should continue, there are rooms for improvements. Mutual defense treaty must be signed with the right partner(s).

ASEAN states must posses own technology for its military products and severe dependence from outside suppliers. Malaysia buying ANOA from Indonesia is a good start. Why there's no more regional joint-production on military hardware is beyond me.

ASEAN must be turned into NATO-like superstate union. I've heard this proposal from Vietnam and Philippine and surprisingly, Australia.

ASEAN/Nusantara must regain its past glory where its NO ONE's bath tub or playground.

agree...but 1st of all,certain country such as Cambodia whom well known to be leaning towards China should neutralized their stand 1st, ASEAN should emulate the EU economically and militarily...

Indonesia,Malaysia and Brunei should formed their own military industry, we have no other places to go, we never run in the past even in our colonial days and war days, rain or shine we're all still here and will always be here in our beloved Nusantara...insyaallah.

I understand certain countries like Cambodia is a thorn by our side, and ASEAN-way of seeking-consensus is self-defeating in nature, in a time of need.

You're right countries like Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei should take the lead and form coalition of the willing, immediately.

Viet & Phil, i think will gladly join at an instance. This is what the outsider(s) fear.. united ASEAN front, militarily.

Come to think of it, history repeats itself 700+ years later. Talk about threat from the North.

Indonesia as a senior in military fabrication should lead the way, in terms of number of skilled military industrial workers Indonesia have in hand,there's no doubt only Indonesia currently have the cuts to lead these industry among the 3 nusantara country...keep up the good work.

Indonesia leads in terms of local production of military hardware such as; Airforce (PT DI - IFX), Navy (PT PAL - many), Army (Pindad, etc), etc

Anyone knows whether Indonesia/Malaysia/Brunei has initiated any joint-production/cooperation for that matter?

(even there's such a thing, it could be a privileged inside info)

Malaysia have a limited numbers of military related skilled workers,we can only concentrate on certain industry such as shipbuilding and small scale weapons.

That's why Indonesia should lead the way coz u're have the vast number of skilled labors and an established various military industry to begin with, keep it up, sooner or later the world will be fascinated with your products.

Yes, LAPAN successfully launched their rockets

from what i gather LAPAN only lacks the (completed-proven) guidance component (GPS, Laser, CMOS, etc). Though some prototype is in progress
