The ASEAN and the Rhinopithecus roxellana

The Philippines holds the current chairmanship of the ASEAN. Actually, it's supposed to be Burma's turn, but they were BULLIED last year to give up the priviledge (mostly by the West). Poor Burma.

The ASEAN will celebrate its 40th Anniversary on 8 August, prior, the 40th Ministerial Meeting and the 14th ASEAN Regional Forum will be held on 29 July - 02 August in Manila.

The Ministerial Meeting focus mainly on specific topics such as defense, environment, fisheries and other minor agenda and mainly attended by ministers, not by Head of States like the ASEAN Summit.

The ASEAN Regional Forum is an informal multilateral dialogue in the Asia Pacific region. They talk about...stuffs, that "apparently" will help the region boost confidence with each other whatever. It is mainly attended by super-countries who would like to maintain ties with the ASEAN.

Political Analysts, newpapers and other nosy people are shaking heaven and hell to the news that Condoleezza Rice, The U.S. Secretary of State, will not attend the meeting.

Is she snubbing the ASEAN?... I say...








So what?!







Golden Snub Nosed monkey.
