JAKARTA (JAKARTA POST/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – Indonesia has asked China to make good on its promise to conclude by mid-year the ongoing negotiations on a framework for a code of conduct (COC) in the South China Sea (SCS), as Foreign Minister Retno LP Marsudi met her counterpart Wang Yi in the Chinese capital.
Retno met Wang in Beijing on Saturday (May 13) to discuss various issues of common concern, including the SCS debate, wherein Indonesia is not a claimant but acts as an honest broker.
“One of the issues that will definitely be tabled by the foreign ministers is what to do next to expedite the process of the post-COC framework negotiations,” ministry spokesperson Arrmanatha Nasir said.
