Chile, Egypt, Morocco sign ASEAN amity, cooperation treaty

Chile, Egypt and Morocco signed the Treaty of Amity and Cooperation (TAC) in Southeast Asia on Tuesday, bringing the number of countries that signed the TAC to 35.

The treaty, which came into force in 1976, was forged by members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and aims at promoting regional and international peace and stability between countries within the code of conduct.

Foreign ministers from ASEAN members agreed at their 49th ministerial meeting in July to accept the three countries to join in the treaty.

The TAC extension came on the occasion as the 28th and 29th ASEAN summits and related summits kicked off on Tuesday.
