U.S. President Joe Biden, in opening remarks ahead of meetings with ASEAN leaders, said he was ready to discuss with them “Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine and our efforts to address the war’s global impacts, including in Southeast Asia.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was also at the ASEAN summit, as was Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba. Earlier, UN chief Antonio Guterres said he had made clear to participants at the Cambodia summit that it was important to establish the conditions for reestablishing dialogue between Ukraine and Russia and “progressively to start looking into a future where peace will prevail.”
