The #ASEAN disunity over AUKUS

The #ASEAN sees #aukus pact increases geopolitical risks in the region, as #aukus is aimed at countering rising Chinese belligerence.
The rise of partnerships in the region, which are not ASEAN-centric causes them concern.

orfonline.org/expert-speak/t…
2/ How have various #ASEAN countries reacted to #aukus ?

They've not reacted in unison. Each member expressed its own views. The divergence in opinion was quite apparent.
Brunei did not speak about it.
Indonesia expressed caution with AUKUS.
Malaysia appears astonished. Image
3/ #Vietnam is more open to #aukus “All countries strive for the same goal of peace, stability, cooperation, and development” & nuclear power can be harnessed for development.

The #Philippines is more welcoming of the #aukus though President #Duterte sounded contradictory. Image

THREAD: A year ago today Nov 8, #Myanmar held its elections where #AungSanSuuKyi #NLD won in an even bigger landslide than 2015 with over 80% of total contested seats. But this win has led to a #militarycoup takeover on Feb 1 (1/5)
#WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar
irrawaddy.com/elections/offi…
#Myanmar citizens' resounding support for #AungSanSuuKyi #NLD caught all especially military by surprise. The results caused greater discomfort for #military who used that as a key basis to stage a #coup alleging electoral fraud which independent election observers refute (2/5)
9 months into #Myanmar #militarycoup, World Bank estimates an almost 20% #economic contraction this year, drive-by shootings becoming common, collapsed education & healthcare sectors. Over 220,000 displaced. @aapp records over 1,200 people have died (3/5) #WhatsHappeninglnMyanmar

1/3. A thread on ballpark estimate of -1% China growth shock, IF really bad chain reactions as some China commentaries suggesting

#Evergrande Fallout LEADS To
#Real #Estate #Contraction -10% LEADS To
#China #GDP -1% LEADS to

#US and the rest of the world?
2/3. IMF paper @KamiarMohaddes etc. estimated in 2016, w. -1% China growth shock

GLOBAL growth - 0.23%.
#INDIA will be least impacted.
#ASEAN-5 countries (except Philippines), ranging between -0.23% and -0.35%
#EURO Area -0.12%
#UK -0.04%
#US -0.07%

imf.org/external/pubs/…
3/3. Caveats: written 2016. Estimates Statistical with wide band. China has further integrated with the world where it BOTH imports and exports significantly. Hope Prof. @KamiarMohaddes keep updating as it will be called up frequently next 30 years

Y'all blaming President Biden for the way Afghanistan is today but really you need to review what President Trump did there, like capitulating to Taliban demands to free Baladar in 2018, after 8yrs in custody.

An unmitigated fool. Blood on his hands.
nytimes.com/2018/10/25/wor…
Trump has blood on his hands in so many different ways. Along with his henchmen, some of whom are more competent than him and need to be stopped before they succeed at picking up his mantle.

I agreed with many aspects of his foreign policy. But not on Afghanistan.
I literally chose my Twitter handle @FreedomFriesInc to reflect my belief in the #CollectiveSecurity doctrine of institutions like #NATO, #ASEAN, (& the late #ANZUS, killed by NZ in 1986.)

In 2003 France let us down. So we jokingly renamed french fries. It was an early "meme".

.@francediplo: We see each other in institutional formats such as the IORA, which is very much in charge of maritime security. Similarly, we are cooperating in other dedicated formats catering to issues like illegal fishing and financing of terrorism. #Raisina2021

The Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s annual, highly-controlled press conference starts in about 10 minutes. #China facing massive global challenges but, with only screened questions permitted, no guarantee that any decent questions will be allowed at all.
Unfortunately due to the high volume of Communist Party sponsored/encouraged troll attacks in recent times I’m limiting who can respond to this thread. I’m sorry to impose this on normal people out there with genuine questions but until @Twitter fixes this it’ll be happening more
Due to #coronavirus restrictions Wang Yi’s annual NPC press conference will, for the second year in a row, be done remotely. He will be at the Great Hall of the People and a selection of approved journalists will ask questions from a media centre in another part of #Beijing.

.@ASEAN @mofakr do clarify how giving an award to CEO of #KBZ bank which funded over $25mn USD to #MyanmarMilitary who in turn is responsible for serious international crimes against #Rohingyas ok? @UN FFM report already names them
How is it fine to support #Hate & #violence? 1/n ImageImage
While the #Rohingya community was massacred, forced to flew, and are still struggling to survive, #ASEAN gave an award for 'Inclusion' to one of the biggest corporate funders of Tatmadaw. Is this the kind of "support" victims should expect from Int organisations? @ASEAN 2/n
& this award is supported by @MOFAkr_eng. While the former UN Special Rapporteur to Myanmar @YangheeLeeSKKU had shown the world what happened with #Rohingya community.
