ASEAN was established in August 1967 with the aim of accelerating economic growth, social progress and cultural development in the region and promoting peace and stability in the region. On the 39th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting from 24 to 25 July, the ministers issued a joint communiqué expressing concern at recent developments in North Korea – including the launch of its Taepodong 2 missiles on 5 July – which could undermine peace and security in the region. They stressed the need for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and called on relevant parties to take advantage of the upcoming ASEAN Regional Forum to revive the Six-Party Talks for a peaceful solution to the nuclear issue.
