ASEAN leaders hold COVID teleconference

Hanoi – The Association of Southeast Asian Nations will meet virtually on Tuesday to coordinate their responses to the coronavirus. The 10-member ASEAN bloc may also host a teleconference that includes the leaders of Japan, China and South Korea.

Vietnam, which chairs the group this year, has postponed the leaders’ summit from April to late June. A special summit with the U.S. in Las Vegas, originally scheduled for mid-March, has also been delayed. (Nikkei)
