On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the ASEAN-India Dialogue Relations, I would like to extend, on behalf of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, warmest congratulations and best wishes to the Government and people of the Republic of India.

Since their commencement in 1992, ASEAN-India relations have made significant progress and expanded to cover a wide range of areas of political-security, economic, and socio-cultural cooperation. Our collective commitment to promoting peace, stability and prosperity in the region as a shared strategic vision and cornerstone of ASEAN-India relations has been demonstrated through India’s early accession to the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in South East Asia and India’s strong support for ASEAN Centrality in the evolving regional architecture, including India’s active participation in and positive contributions to the ASEAN-Ied regional mechanisms.
