A Vietnamese delegation is being led by Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Dung. The meetings aim to prepare for the ASEAN Summit, the 52nd ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting and the ASEAN Foreign Ministers' Meeting Post-Ministerial Conferences, which are scheduled to take place in Bangkok in late June and late July.

Participants are set to discuss cooperation in the building of the ASEAN Community, especially in advancing partnerships for sustainability – a priority  for Thailand’s ASEAN chairmanship this year. They will also look into measures to enhance the bloc’s relations with partners and exchange views on important international and regional matters.

The  ASEAN SOM and related meetings demonstrate Thailand’s role in promoting peace and cooperation in the region to realize security, sustainable development and economic growth , as well as to achieve sustainable social security, thus helping to build a future-oriented and people-centered ASEAN Community where no one is left behind.
