PUTRAJAYA, Feb 15  -- Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Abdullah will lead Malaysia’s delegation to the ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ (AMM) Retreat from Feb 16-17 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

The AMM retreat is the first scheduled meeting of the year in 2022 for the ASEAN Member States, said the Malaysian Foreign Ministry (Wisma Putra) in a statement today.

Preceded by the ASEAN Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM) from Feb 15-16, the Malaysian delegation to the ASEAN SOM will be led by the Secretary-General of Foreign Ministry, Tan Sri Muhammad Shahrul Ikram Yaakob, and SOM Leader of ASEAN-Malaysia.

“Among the issues that will be discussed by the Foreign Ministers are updates on the implementation of the decisions reached during the 38th and 39th ASEAN Summits and Related Summits, as well as ASEAN’s external relations.

“In addition, the Foreign Ministers will also discuss initiatives to take forward the agenda and key priorities of Cambodia’s ASEAN Chairmanship in 2022; and exchange views on regional and international issues of mutual interest.

“As ASEAN Member States set sights towards developing the ASEAN Community’s Post-2025 Vision, Malaysia as the Co-Chair and Permanent Shepherd of the High-Level Task Force on the ASEAN Community’s Post-2025 Vision remains committed in upholding ASEAN Centrality and fully supports Cambodia as Chair in ensuring ASEAN’s continuous progress at the regional and international level,” said the statement.

Cambodia helms the Chairmanship of ASEAN in 2022 with the theme “ASEAN A.C.T.: Addressing Challenges Together”. 

The AMM Retreat will be chaired by Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Prak Sokhonn, with the participation of ASEAN Foreign Ministers, Secretary-General of ASEAN, and representative of Myanmar.

The session will be held in full compliance with the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) put in place by the authorities of both countries.
