Biden hails new era in Southeast Asian ties at key summit

The United States is committed to being engaged in Southeast Asia, President Joe Biden has said, welcoming a summit with leaders of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEA) in Washington, DC, as a “new era” in relations.

Speaking on the second day of the two-day meeting, Biden told the leaders on Friday that “a great deal of history of our world in the next 50 years is going to be written in the ASEAN countries”.

“And our relationship with you is the future, in the coming years and decades,” he said.

The summit marks the first time ASEAN leaders have been invited to the White House in 45 years. In 2016, President Obama was the first US leader to host the summit, then held in Rancho Mirage, California.

“We’re launching a new era – a new era – in US-ASEAN relations,” Biden said.
