ASEAN summit: What do the China-Taiwan tensions mean for Southeast Asia? - DW News.

Top Southeast Asian diplomats met in Cambodia's capital city of Phnom Penh on Wednesday to intensify efforts to stop the escalating violence in Myanmar. Another topic expected to dominate the ASEAN meeting this week is US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, the first by any high-ranking US official in decades.

As China warns of "targeted military actions" in response to Pelosi visiting the self-ruled island that Beijing claims as part of its territory, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and the US top diplomat Antony Blinken are both flying into the Cambodian capital this week. In addition to Wang and Blinken, Russia's Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov is also set to make an appearance at the ASEAN meeting.

"ASEAN has to deal with challenges of different types and levels but never before, never like this year, have we been confronted at the same time with so many perils for the region and the world at large," Cambodia's Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn said ahead of the meetings.
