Excellencies,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

It is an honour for me to attend this meeting…

Last month, (13 June 2017), I Attended Oslo Forum in Oslo….It was my second participation in Oslo Forum. This year's theme was "Peace Making in the New Era of Geopolitics"

​I was in the same stage…the same session with:

  • Foreign Minister of Iran, Javad Zarif
  • High Representatve of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini
  • Secretary John Kerry
  • Moderated by Foreign Minister of Norway, Borge Brende 

It was inevitable that crisis in the Gulf and crisis in the Middle East were dominated the discussion….

During the discussion, I did not touch upon the crisis in the Gulf and Middle East…. but rather I was intentionally spoke about a different story… about ASEAN……about how this Association contributes to Peace and prosperity in South East Asia…
