The ten Heads of State/Government from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), including President Benigno S. Aquino III, met with President Park Geun-hye at the 17th ASEAN-Republic of Korea Summit on the final day of the 27th ASEAN Summit and Related Summits in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In recent years, ASEAN and the Republic of Korea had been enhancing its dialogue partnership in the aim of having a friendly, mutually beneficial, meaningful and strategic partnership.
Also, South Korea continues to support the region in various areas such as the establishment of the ASEAN Community and beyond, enhanced connectivity, narrowing development gaps, and strengthening of the ASEAN Secretariat in order to realize a politically cohesive, economically integrated, socially responsible and a truly people-oriented, people-centered and rules-based ASEAN.
