Brunei Darussalam reaffirms its commitment to the maintenance of peace, stability, and prosperity in the region.
Brunei Darussalam maintains its two-step approach in addressing the South China Sea.
Specific issues should be addressed bilaterally by the countries directly concerned through peaceful dialogue and consultations. Brunei Darussalam emphasises that such negotiations on the South China Sea should be resolved in accordance with the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and the rules and principles of international law.
In addition, all countries concerned need to promote a calm, peaceful and conducive environment, building confidence and enhancing mutual trust in the region.
Brunei Darussalam stresses the importance of working actively towards the early conclusion of an effective and substantive Code of Conduct in the South China Sea (COC).
Brunei Darussalam will continue to engage with all countries and contribute to the maintenance of regional peace and stability.
