Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh is gearing up for an official visit to the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, to partake in the 10th ASEAN Defence Ministers’ Meeting-Plus (ADMM-Plus). Scheduled for November 16, 2023, the meeting serves as a significant platform for regional and international security deliberations. Indonesia, as the chair of ADMM-Plus, is hosting this crucial event.

Key Highlights of the Visit:

During the meeting, Shri Rajnath Singh will take the podium to address the forum on pressing regional and international security issues. The discussions are expected to contribute to cooperative efforts in strengthening security ties among the participating nations.

Bilateral Engagements:

In addition to the ADMM-Plus proceedings, Shri Rajnath Singh will engage in bilateral meetings with the Defence Ministers of participating countries. These talks seek to enhance defense collaboration, nurturing mutually advantageous partnerships and tackling common security concerns.

ADMM-Plus: A Pillar of Defence Cooperation:

The ADMM-Plus stands as the highest defence consultative and cooperative mechanism within ASEAN. Comprising ASEAN member states and eight Dialogue Partners, including India, the platform plays a pivotal role in fortifying security and defence cooperation.

ADMM-Plus: A Pillar of Defence Cooperation:

India became a dialogue partner of ASEAN in 1992, and the inaugural ADMM-Plus took place in Hanoi, Vietnam, on October 12, 2010. Since 2017, the ADMM-Plus Ministers have convened annually, reinforcing cooperation among ASEAN and its Dialogue Partners.

Focus on Practical Cooperation:

The ADMM-Plus channels its efforts through seven expert Working Groups (EWGs), addressing critical areas such as Maritime Security, Military Medicine, Cyber Security, Peacekeeping Operations, Counter-Terrorism, Humanitarian Mine Action, and Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief (HADR).

India’s Contribution to EWG on HADR:

In the current cycle from 2021-2024, India holds the co-chair position for the EWG on HADR, emphasizing its commitment to collaborative efforts in disaster relief and humanitarian assistance.

Anticipated Outcomes:

The forthcoming 10th ADMM-Plus is anticipated to reveal the upcoming co-chairs for the 2024-2027 term, indicating a forward-thinking strategy in the joint endeavors of member nations.

As Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh embarks on his official visit to Jakarta, the 10th ADMM-Plus presents an invaluable opportunity for India to actively contribute to regional security dialogues. Through bilateral engagements and discussions on key security issues, the visit is poised to reinforce India’s commitment to fostering enduring defence cooperation within the ASEAN framework.
