ASEAN-Australia Summit Grapples with Gaza Statement Amidst Divisions

Leaders from the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Australia face challenges in reaching a consensus on a joint declaration regarding the conflict in Gaza.

Reports suggest that nations are divided on the wording of the statement, with a draft showing general agreement on a call for an “immediate and durable humanitarian ceasefire.”

However, deep divisions are apparent, as seen in an earlier working draft where Singapore, known for its close ties to Israel, objected to condemning “the use of starvation” in the Gaza Strip.

The struggle reflects the complexities of finding common ground on the Gaza issue.
