Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of the Republic of Singapore, and attended by all Heads of State/Government of ASEAN Member States and H.E. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of the Republic of India.

2. We warmly recalled the successful convening of the ASEAN-India Commemorative Summit in New Delhi under the theme “Shared Values, Common Destiny” on 25 January 2018, as well as various commemorative activities held in ASEAN Member States and India to deepen our people-to-people ties. We encouraged both sides to continue the implementation of the Delhi Declaration to further enhance the ASEAN-India Strategic Partnership and contribute to the promotion of peace, stability, and prosperity in the region.

3. ASEAN Leaders expressed appreciation for India’s continued support for ASEAN Centrality in the evolving regional architecture through India’s active participation and positive contribution to ASEAN-led mechanisms, including the East Asia Summit (EAS), the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) and the ASEAN Defence Ministers’ Meeting-Plus (ADMM-Plus). We agreed to continue utilising these mechanisms to effectively respond to traditional and non-traditional security challenges.
