In 2012, as chair of the ASEAN meet, Cambodia helped kill a similar statement on the South China Sea and for the first time in its 45-year history the body failed to issue a joint statement after a foreign ministers' meeting.
The foreign ministers agreed to start operating a bilateral aerial and maritime communication mechanism as soon as possible in order to prevent any unintended clashes between the two countries in the East China Sea.

To prevent conflicts and maintain order in the South China Sea, it is indispensable to lay down legally binding global rules.
This was followed by the call for a "Code of Conduct for the South China Sea", which was given its own acronym, "COC".
Criticising ongoing "land reclamation, construction of outposts, (and) militarisation of disputed features" in the disputed sea, the three countries said any COC must be "legally binding, meaningful and effective", a demand noticeably absent from the Asean statement. The International Court of Arbitration in The Hague denied much of China's territorial claim to the South China Sea.
"We sent a message to them that all ASEAN countries are not happy with the actions of North Korea that still continue to violate the United Nations resolution", he told reporters, referring to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
Contrary to the statements of Cayetano and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that Beijing has stopped reclaiming in the South China Sea, a Washington-based think tank released satellite imagery showing that Beijing did not stop its reclamation activities in mid-2015.
