Deputy Secretary General of ASEAN for Political Security Community Hoang Anh Tuan has called for better efforts to enhance ASEAN’s anti-terrorism capacity in an ongoing symposium in Singapore.
Terrorism has been among the biggest threats to the regional peace, stability and prosperity, Tuan told the 2018 Southeast Asia Counter-Terrorism Symposium, which is taking place on October 4-5.
It is needed to improve the ASEAN nations’ capacity in counter-terrorism against the backdrop of the growing threat of cyber terrorism in Southeast Asia, while not all member states are properly accoutered to fight this threat, he said.
The two-day event is organised by the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS), Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, with support from the local Ministries of Culture, Community and Youth; Defence; Foreign Affairs; and Home Affairs; and the National Security Coordination Secretariat.
