       On 22 November 2023. H.E. Mr. Sihasak Phuangketkaew, Vice Minister for Foreign Affairs, gave a talk on the Promotion of Security Cooperation in the Asia-Pacific from Thailand's perspective at the 59th Council for Security Cooperation in the Asia Pacific (CSCAP) Steering Committee Meeting, Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel, Bangkok.

       The Vice Minister addressed the world's fragility, noting the evolving regional security landscape driven by geopolitics, geo-economics, and geo-technological competition. ASEAN's resilience and progress were highlighted through its pragmatic, rules-based approach to addressing historical disputes and modern crises. The Vice Minister suggested measures for enhancing ASEAN's centrality and unity, and concluded with a call for unwavering commitment to multilateralism and regionalism, utilising platforms like CSCAP for discussions contributing to a secure and prosperous future.

       Established in 1993, CSCAP serves as the primary Track Two organization in the Asia-Pacific, complementing Track One processes such as the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), East Asia Summit (EAS), and the ASEAN Defence Ministers' Meeting Plus (ADMM-Plus). Comprising top experts on Asia-Pacific security from 21 countries and the European Union, CSCAP fosters discussions and facilitates the exchange of experiences to enhance regional security. The decision-making body, the Steering Committee, meets biannually in Malaysia or upon voluntary invitation from other member countries. Currently, CSCAP Thailand is represented by Dr. Suchit Bunbongkarn and Dr. Chitriya Pinthong.
