This year’s ASEAN meet likely virtual

ASEAN foreign ministers are comfortable with the ministerial and senior officials meeting being held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Minister of Foreign Affairs II Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Erywan bin Pehin Datu Pekerma Jaya Haji Mohd Yusof told the media after the ASEAN Foreign Ministers Retreat meeting held via video conference on Thursday.

Physical meetings may be held once everyone is immunised, he said.

Brunei Darussalam is holding the ASEAN Chairmanship this year, and the virtual ASEAN Foreign Ministers Retreat meeting held virtually on Thursday was the first major meeting under the nation’s chairmanship.
