Jakarta, Jan 6 : India on Saturday said it is looking forward to working closely with the ASEAN countries for building a regional security architecture in the Indo-Pacific on the twin principles of shared security and shared prosperity.

“The Indo-Pacific region is increasingly seen as a connectivity pathway – much of the world’s trade passes through these oceans. These waters must not only get better connected, but remain free from traditional and non-traditional threats, that impede free movement of people, goods and ideas,” External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said, addressing the the 5th Roundtable of the ASEAN-India Network of Think Tanks here.

“Respect for international law, notably UNCLOS (United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea), in ensuring this is, therefore imperative,” she said.
