Dialogue 10/20/2012 ACD 2012 eyes “workable roadmap”for cooperation

10-21-2012 05:39 BJT

Hello, I am Yang Rui with Dialogue. One continent as diversified and dynamic as Asia needs to have strong cohesion to promote regional integrity in global competition. This is the theme of the summit called Asia Dialogue Cooperation in Kuwait. But the advantages could be the curse of the region if member economies fail to support the leadership of a few core nations. This is the problem. Arab nations and Iran are fighting each other over Syria, India and Pakistan are traditionally at loggerheads over Kashmir, China, Japan and South Korea do not trust each other on borders due to historical controversies, to say nothing of the US pivot to Asia that has complicated the territorial standoff between China and some claimants of ASEAN. Will countries like China support Gulf States in assuming the regional leadership?

Unity and reconciliation will be the key words in the political vocabulary of Asian policy-makers in the first few decades of the 21st century. We should not let the shadow of the 19th century derail our vision to achieve regional integrity. We??ve got to move forward. But this looks set to be a long process of painful reconfiguration through both competition and cooperation. The EU could be an example, in shaping our roadmap, for bad or good, but Asia obviously needs to navigate its own course.
