This is the first of a series of meetings and conferences to be hosted by Brunei in 2021 during its ASEAN Chairmanship under the theme of “We Care, We Prepare and We Prosper”, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang at a regular press briefing of the ministry in Hanoi on January 14.
At the upcoming meeting, ASEAN Foreign Ministers will exchange views on many important issues, including the implementation of the results of the 37th ASEAN Summit held in Vietnam’s Hanoi capital in November 2020, and work on ASEAN’s priorities in 2021.
They will also touch upon issues related to ASEAN external relations, as well as regional and international issues of mutual concern, Hang said.
Vietnam chaired the ASEAN Year 2020 and it handed over the chairmanship title to Brunei at the 37th ASEAN Summit in Hanoi last November.VOV
