PHNOM PENH — Viet Nam supports Cambodia's initiative to build a conflict-free ASEAN region and a statement on plans to integrate ASEAN's security.
Viet Nam's Defence Minister General Phung Quang Thanh made the comment while addressing the sixth ASEAN Defence Ministers' Meeting (ADMM-6) in Phnom Penh on Tuesday.
Thanh called on all ASEAN countries to maintain an atmosphere of peace, stability, co-operation and development to establish the Political-Security Community by 2015.

To realise this target, all parties must hold talks to solve any disputes including those out at sea by adhering to international laws, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), said Minister Thanh.
All parties needed to stick to the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC) signed between ASEAN and China, and worked towards a Code of Conduct (COC).
He stressed that to solve disputes that involve two countries, bilateral talks were necessary, while disputes involving several parties call for a more multilateral approach to find an acceptable solution for every party concerned. — VNS
