China reports progress on South China Sea code of conduct

Montez Delgado | 19 May, 2017, 17:08

The code framework would envisage a round-the-clock hotline and urge defence officials to find ways to follow the code, Chee Wee Kiong of Singapore's foreign ministry said on Thursday.

China and all 10 members of Asean had been hoping to agree this year on the framework, 15 years after committing to draft it.

Along with the Philippines, ASEAN members Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei also maintain claims in the South China Sea that overlap with those of China and Taiwan.

It was unclear if that was mentioned in the framework draft, which has not been made public. ASEAN is now chaired by the Philippines, whose leader Rodrigo Duterte has pursued a bilateral rapprochement with Beijing since being sworn into office in June 2016.

Former Philippine Consul General Maria Hellen Barber De La Vega to Los Angeles represented the Philippines in the 14th China-ASEAN Senior Officials Meeting on the Implementation of the DOC and the 23rd ASEAN-China Senior Officials' Consultation.

The participants have not mentioned dates for the adoption of a full code of conduct, and while Huang said he thought the sides could act as early as this year to seize the positive momentum, Storey said a final agreement was likely "some years off".
