On 20 July 2023, the Permanent Mission of Russia to the EU hosted a reception for the heads of diplomatic missions of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states accredited in Brussels, members of the ASEAN Brussels Committee.

In his welcoming speech, Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of the Russian Mission to the EU Kirill Logvinov, building on the provisions of the updated Russian Foreign Policy Concept, emphasised that our country prioritises enhancing cooperation with ASEAN countries in various fields. The official also noted that Russia and ASEAN states are united by a firm commitment to forging a more equitable and democratic multipolar international order based on the principles of the UN Charter in their entirety and interdependence.

Participants endorsed the need to continue strengthening the ASEAN-centric system that should remain the foundation for the security and sustainable development of the Asia-Pacific region.

The guests watched “Tell the World about your Motherland” video dedicated to our country’s regions and viewed a photo exhibition entitled "Splendours of Russia".
