ARF(ASEAN Regional Forum)

ROK - ARF Relations

  • The ASEAN Regional Forum(ARF), comprised of 27 Asia-Pacific countries, is a multilateral security mechanism designed to promote mutual trust and understanding as well as to seek peace, security and prosperity in the region. Since its establishment in 1994, the ROK has participated in the ARF, which is held annually in a city according to ASEAN chairmanship.

    In the ARF, member states expand their cooperation activities, focusing on the five areas, which include Disaster Relief, Maritime Security, Non-proliferation and Disarmament, Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crimes, and ICT Security.

    The ARF member states also share their views on regional and international issues in the ARF. By exchanging their ideas, the members enhance mutual understanding and trust, further their dialogue and cooperation, and promote peace, stability and prosperity in the region.
