Wang Yi Achieves Major Agreements on Southeast Asian Tour


Oct. 13 (EIRNS)—Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi is traveling through Southeast Asia, in a follow-up to his successful meetings in southern China with the Indonesian Foreign Minister on Oct. 9 and the Philippines Foreign Minister on Oct. 11. From Oct. 11-15 he will visit most of the other eight countries in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in his effort to shore up support for China to counter U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s containment operations. His first stop was in Cambodia, where the two parties are now preparing to sign a free-trade agreement. Wang Yi also said that he would help Cambodia in its fight against COVID and will continue work on the Belt and Road Initiative projects there. He then proceeded to Malaysia where he had a meeting with the Foreign Minister Hishamuddin Tan Hussein. The two agreed to expand their cooperation and will sign a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation for the post-COVID era. Wang Yi said that the two countries should also work to prevent “external disruptions” (i.e., U.S. provocations), in the South China Sea dispute, which they agreed must be resolved among the claimants. Both Malaysia and China have maritime border disputes in that region. Wang Yi will proceed to Laos and Thailand, with a transit stop in Singapore.
