(May 28, 2019) More 'substantive' deal on S China Sea - Kavi Chongkittavorn

 Goodwill between Asean and China has reached an unprecedented level as both sides are working diligently to conclude the much anticipated code of conduct on the South China Sea. The process, which began in 2002, has now reached a crescendo, though there are still issues and differences that need to be ironed out.

If everything goes as planned, Asean and China would complete the first reading of the Single Draft Negotiating Text (SDNT) of the Code of Conduct (COC) for the South China Sea by the end of July. At the latest meeting in Hangzhou, China on May 17-18, senior officials from both sides made "substantive" progress on the SDNT. For the first time, a qualitative and positive word was used to describe progress on longstanding negotiations on the code of conduct that would help manage tensions in the South China Sea.
