- ASEAN extends its congratulations to the United Nations on the auspicious occasion of its 70th Anniversary. ASEAN supports the central role that the United Nations plays in the global multilateral system and the United Nations’ continued strong contribution to promoting international peace and security, development, and human rights.
- ASEAN welcomes the recent adoption of 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which will help ensure that “no one is left behind.” As ASEAN will become a people-oriented, people-centered Community at the end of this year and is expected to adopt a post-2015 Vision for the next ten years, ASEAN hopes that both the ASEAN Community’s post-2015 Vision and the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will complement each other, leading to the uplifting of the standard of living of peoples in the Southeast Asian region. In this connection, ASEAN looks forward to working closely with all relevant parties in ensuring the effective implementation of the SDGs.
