ASEAN united over South China Sea

Audio: Kanaha Sabapathy reports.(ABC News) ASEAN foreign ministers have agreed to take a unified position when they meet their Chinese counterpart in an attempt to resolve ongoing disputes over the South China Sea.

The meeting at the end of August is expected to address the issue of a code of conduct in the South China Sea.

China's claims to much of the maritime region have raised tensions not only between other claimants and China but also among ASEAN members themselves.

But Indonesian Foreign Minister, Marty Natalegawa, has told Radio Australia's Asia Pacific program that after two days of informal discussions in Thailand, they have agreed to speak with one voice.

"It is not meant to be a magic wand, it is meant to be a very concrete actionable set of rules and norms, rules and conduct, for the South China Sea," he said.

It's a vast improvement in relations since the release of the final declaration of the 2012 ASEAN summit was delayed when chair, Cambodia, refused to endorse a Philippines push for a tougher line with Beijing on the issue.

China has refused to upgrade the 2002 declaration of conduct into a legally binding code because it wants to negotiate individually with each country.

It is not meant to be a magic wand, it is meant to be a very concrete actionable set of rules and norms, rules and conduct, for the South China Sea.

Last year Chinese government vessels seized the Scarborough Shoal, an outcrop just 230 kilometers east of the main Philippine island of Luzon.

The Philippines strongly condemned the move and sought international arbitration after it failed to get regional support from ASEAN.

As tensions with China increased, the Philippines and Vietnam moved to deal with the matter by reviewing their security relationships with the United States.

Long history of conflict
The Philippines is currently in discussion with Washington to reach an accord that will result in greater US military presence in the country.

Mr Natalegewa doesn't believe those discussions will be an issue when ASEAN foreign ministers negotiate with China.

"We have to be smart in developing relations, friendly relations, with countries outside of ASEAN," he said.

"But we have to have a clear benchmark, the kind of norms and principles within which they should be working in our region."

Rudolfo Severino, from the ASEAN Studies Centre at the Institute of South East Asian Studies, says despite the previous tensions, common interests will keep ASEAN members united.

"Each country is free to develop it's own foreign policy and dealing with China is one of them for South East Asian countries at least," Mr Severino said.

"Claimants or non-claimants. Everybody who trades heavily with or in East Asia, has a stake in how the South China Sea is addressed.

"The international community has a stake in decent stability in the region, the prevalance of the rule of law and the freedom of navigation."

You Worst than China and world Combined, The US/Isreal and g7 allies are warring bullies of the world are in decline ... 179 nations just given US big middle fingers and US allies are also in Conflict with US macroeconomic wars on their economies! BWHAHHAHAAHA!

by Paul Craig Roberts , American economist and a columnist for Creators Syndicate. He served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration (left because US corruption)...

The moral authority of the West is rapidly collapsing. When Russia, Asia, and South America look at Europe, Australia and Canada, they see American puppet states that contribute troops to the aggressive wars of the Empire. The French president, the British prime minister, and the rest are merely functionaries of the American Empire. The puppet rulers routinely sell out the interests and welfare of their peoples in behalf of American hegemony.
