VGP – The solidarity and unity in diversity created ASEAN character, highlighted ASEAN Secretary General Le Luong Minh.

ASEAN has maintained its solidarity and unity on the basis of common commitments and collective responsibility for peace, stability and prosperity in the region, he said.

The bloc’s decisions are consensus-based to ensure that no member State is marginalized in addressing issues of common concerns, he added.
