Seize the ‘Asian moment’, China tells Cambodia ahead of US-Asean summit

Asian countries should be cautious and resist any attempts to provoke confrontation in the region, China’s foreign minister told his Cambodian counterpart in the countdown to a Southeast Asian leaders summit in Washington this week.

Speaking with Cambodian Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn via video link on Sunday, Wang Yi also urged the region to seize the “Asian moment” and take the initiative in global governance as it prepares to host several high-profile multilateral meetings.

The meetings include the BRICS summit in China, the East Asia Summit meetings in Cambodia and the G20 summit in Indonesia. Thailand is also hosting this year’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation meetings.
