17 March 2015

Langkawi, 17 March 2015 - The ASEAN Defence Ministers have pledged to elevate regional defence cooperation to new heights consistent with the realisation of ASEAN Community 2015. This strong commitment was made at the 9th ASEAN Defence Meeting held in Langkawi, Malaysia on 16 March 2015, which was chaired by H.E. Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Minister of Defence of Malaysia and attended by all Defence Ministers and the Secretary-General of ASEAN. The Meeting concluded with the Defence Ministers signing a Joint Declaration on Maintaining Regional Security and Stability for and by the People.

The main outcomes of the ADMM this year will contribute effectively to the overall ASEAN cooperation on disaster relief and humanitarian assistance (HADR). H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN, emphasised that “the work of the ADMM is crucial in contributing towards a more united and effective HADR response when a disaster strikes the region”. The Ministers adopted the Concept Papers on ASEAN Militaries Ready Group on HADR and the Establishment of the ASEAN Centre of Military Medicine.

The Ministers also endorsed the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the Utilisation of Military Assets for HADR under the Framework of the ASEAN Agreement on Disaster Management and Emergency Response (AADMER). This SOP will be a contribution to the existing SOP for Regional Standby Arrangements and Coordination of Joint Disaster Relief and Emergency Response Operations (SASOP).
