The participants at the annual ministerial meetings, senior officials’ meetings(SOM), and other meetings of the Forum, expressed understanding and shared views towards the principled stand and persistent efforts of the DPRK to ensure peace on the Korean peninsula.

We appreciate that ASEAN, a leading organization of ARF, makes its fair efforts towards regional security and development of relations among countries under the principles of respect for sovereignty, non-interference in internal affairs and consensus, and in particular, maintains its principled stand of supporting realization of peace and security of the Korean peninsula through dialogue and negotiations.
