TO the ministers of the Philippines’ partner-governments and other guests who attended the 50th Anniversary of ASEAN this week, we can say: Thanks to you we’re much obliged / For such a pleasant stay / But now it’s time for you to go / And with it pain.

MANILA — Japan’s new Foreign Minister Taro Kono on Monday brushed aside a provocative remark by his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi during their first talks since Kono assumed his post last week, saying he wants Beijing to “learn how to behave as a big power.” [https://japantoday.com/category/politics/update2-japan%27s-kono-asks-china-to-learn-how-to-behave-as-big-power]

According to the ASEAN Leaders’ Declaration of 08 August 2017, the 50th Anniversary of ASEAN “is a historic occasion that highlights our success in building an ASEAN Community that is rules-based, people-oriented, and people-centered.” With this Sentence 1, we may appreciate the ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights Report on the Attacks on Lawmakers and the Threat to Cambodia’s Institutions, which in part says: “Parliamentarians have been victims of physical attacks – prominently in October 2015 when two CNRP MPs were brutally beaten by a pro-government mob outside the National Assembly – as well as verbal and online threats from CPP leaders, members, and supporters, and other forms of intimidation. These attacks and threats produce a climate of fear.” [Death Knell For Democracy, aseanmp.org]

Sentence 4 of the ASEAN Leaders’ Declaration: “As we move forward together, we will intensify our efforts to realize the goals of the ASEAN Community Vision 2025 under our theme of ‘One Vision, One Identity, One Community.’ We reaffirm our commitment to the effective, efficient and timely implementation of the ASEAN Political-Security Community Blueprint 2025, the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint 2025, the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community Blueprint 2025, the Master Plan on ASEAN Connectivity 2025 and the Initiative for ASEAN Integration Work Plan III. We underline the complementarities of these community building efforts with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which will help us meet our obligations and responsibilities in the global world order, including the realization of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.” 

How about Convention 151 of the International Labor Organization, which in Article 4 reads, “Public employees shall enjoy adequate protection against acts of anti-union discrimination in respect of their employment.” [http://www.ilo.org/dyn/normlex/en/f?p=NORMLEXPUB:12100:0::NO::P12100_INSTRUMENT_ID:312296]

ASEAN’s 50th was also celebrated with a Joint Communiqué Of The Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, which contained the following: “We reiterated our commitment to preserve the Southeast Asian region as a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone and free of all other weapons of mass destruction as enshrined in the Treaty on the Southeast Asia Nuclear Weapon-Free Zone (SEANWFZ Treaty) and the ASEAN Charter. We stressed the importance of the full and effective implementation of the SEANWFZ Treaty. We agreed to extend the Plan of Action to implement the SEANWFZ Treaty for another five-year period (2018-2022).”

Paragraph 21: “We welcomed the Philippines’ hosting of the 4th ASEANTOM Meeting in December 2017. We looked forward to the establishment of a formal partnership between the ASEAN Network of Regulatory Bodies on Atomic Energy and IAEA to promote greater cooperation and collaboration between the two bodies in the areas of nuclear safety, security and safeguards, including capacity building.”

The Communiqué came a day before the 72nd anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, of which Mahatma Gandhi once told a reporter: “I will not go underground. I will not go into a shelter. I will come out in the open and let the pilot see I have not a trace of ill-will against him. The pilot will not see our faces from his great height, I know. But the longing in our hearts – that he will not come to harm – would reach up to him and his eyes would be opened.”

“If those thousands who were done to death in Hiroshima, if they had died with that prayerful action – their sacrifice would not have gone in vain.” [http://www.mkgandhi.org/articles/NuclearArms.htm]

In the City of Hiroshima this year, Mayor Matsui Kazumi called “especially on the Japanese government to manifest the pacifism in our constitution by doing everything in its power to bridge the gap between the nuclear-weapon and non-nuclear-weapon states, thereby facilitating the ratification of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.”

The legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons (leading towards their total elimination), which recognized the efforts by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, religious leaders, parliamentarians, academics and the hibakusha, was adopted last 07 July with the affirmative votes of the Philippines, Fiji, Liechtenstein, State Of Palestine, New Zealand, Cuba, Republic Of Moldova, Ireland, and 114 other members of the General Assembly. [A/CONF.229/2017/8]

In Nagasaki, which also marked its 72nd anniversary as a recipient of an American plutonium bomb at the climax of the Pacific War, the Mayor said in the city’s annual Peace Declaration that the Abe Administration’s “stance of not even participating in the diplomatic negotiations for the Nuclear Prohibition Treaty is quite incomprehensible to those of us living in the cities that suffered atomic bombings.” Taue Tomihisa also called on his central government to “affirm to the world its commitment to the pacifist ethos of the Constitution of Japan, which firmly renounces war.” [https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2017/08/5aa303da110c-nagasaki-marks-72nd-anniversary-of-atomic-bombing.html]

Incidentally, the Nagasaki District Legal Affairs Bureau acknowledged that it had disposed of the rosters of the 3,400 Koreans who were conscripted as laborers at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki Shipyard in the city of Nagasaki during World War II. The discarded documents would have enabled the Korean workers to earn their Atomic Bomb Survivor’s Certificates. [https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20170808p2a/00m/0na/011000c#cxrecs_s]

In Paragraph 192 the Foreign Ministers “reaffirmed the importance of maintaining and promoting peace, security, stability, safety and freedom of navigation in and over-flight above the South China Sea.”
