Dureza to speak at Asia-Pacific Roundtable on Peace and security

Manila (2 June) -- Chief Presidential Legal Counsel Jesus Dureza left yesterday for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to speak at the 23rd Asia-Pacific Roundtable (APR) organized by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ASEAN-ISIS).

Dureza was invited to talk and share his insights on "Addressing Insurgency and Militancy in the Philippines" at the three-day roundtable focusing on current major global issues confronting the region such as financial crisis, peace and regional security.

He said that the gathering presents an opportunity to impart and share the country's challenges and headways in peace and security with emphasis on broader understanding of the issues.

A former chief negotiator and peace adviser, then later became press secretary, Dureza is part of an influential international pool of experts holding roundtable fora on various global concerns.

Slated from June 1-4 at the Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel, the 23rd APR convenes in the wake of a new US administration and foreign policy outlook, a deepening global economic crisis, rising concerns related to climate change and interesting political developments in Southeast Asia.

"This year's APR expects to provide a timely setting for discussion of these current issues and others affecting regional security," says roundtable convenor Tan Sri Mohamed Jawhar Hassan, Chairman and CEO of ISIS Malaysia.

Since its inception in 1987, the APR has emerged as an important annual fixture in the regional dialogue process, bringing together prominent individuals from the worlds of policy, academe, media and business to discuss current strategic issues. (PIA) [top]
