Iran joins TAC

Politics - Iran signed the document to join the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC) in Singapore on Thursday to be able to use the capacities of fifth economic power in the world.

In the signing meeting, all the 10 foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) state-members and the Iranian Ambassador to Singapore Javad Ansari were present.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Singapore on Wednesday to attend the 51st session and to sign the document.

Regarding Iran's membership in TAC, Javad Ansari said that it shows that Iranophobia has failed and Iran can use the ASEAN framework to expand economic ties.

Senior experts and foreign ministers from ASEAN have convened in Singapore since Monday to discuss regional and trans-regional issues related to this Association and the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia.

On the second day of their meeting on Wednesday, foreign ministers of ASEAN countries exchanged views on South China Sea, North Korea, and human rights and environmental challenges in Southeast Asia.

The ministers of ten ASEAN member-states, as well as the ministers of observer countries, including Iran, will discuss the latest regional and trans-regional developments in the 51st session of the Association and the subsidiary meetings, the 19th meeting of ASEAN Plus, the 8th ministerial meeting of East Asia, and the 25th regional conference of ASEAN.
