There was little surprise in President Barack Obama’s announcement late last year that the United States is to strengthen its position in East Asia while drawing down its forces stationed in Europe. In East Asia, the security environment is unpredictable and rapidly changing, unlike in Europe where it is relatively stable. Against this background, the efforts now underway to establish a comprehensive multi-lateral framework in the region can learn lessons from the recent history of the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

That globalisation has made the world smaller is a familiar refrain. Regions of the world are now interlinked not only by people, trade and capital flows, but also by common threats like terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, regional conflicts and organised crime. This would suggest that security in Europe and Asia is inseparable, and that to deal with shared security challenges, we have to strengthen dialogue and co-operation. That’s why Japan and the EU are working on a binding agreement that will cover political, global and other sectoral co-operation and which will broaden the base for policy co-ordination.

The EU has worked hard to become a comprehensive and mature entity covering not only economic issues but increasingly foreign policy and security. In Asia, slow but steady efforts are being made to establish a comprehensive multi-lateral framework for relations between countries of the region. Last November’s East Asia Summit (EAS), along with the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) ministerial meetings last July, were very important events for improving the security environment in the region. Both meetings registered significant achievements that were required of them, notably in furthering maritime co-operation and disaster management.


                


The ARF is in the process of building a more predictable and constructive pattern of relations for the Asia-Pacific region. This approach is based on three phases: confidence building, preventative diplomacy and conflict resolution. At its 18th ministerial conference last year, foreign ministers welcomed that ARF had entered into its second phase of preventative diplomacy while continuing to strengthen confidence-building measures. An important feature of the EAS summit later on was that for the first time both the United States and Russia attended. This was a welcome development for Japan because it will strengthen efforts to maintain and enhance the EAS’s aim of regional peace, stability and prosperity. The occasion underlined Russia’s shifting focus of attention toward the Asia-Pacific region, and President-elect Putin’s decision to host Russia’s first Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) meeting in Vladivostok in September of this year reflects this growing interest.

Maritime co-operation, particularly over South China Sea issues, became a focus of attention at both the ARF ministerial meeting and at the EAS, not least because China’s activities in the South and East China Seas have created fresh uncertainty in the region.

The Chair’s statement at the ARF welcomed the finalisation and adoption of the “Guidelines for Implementation of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea”, and expressed hopes for its full and effective implementation. Japan, too, hopes that the guidelines will be put steadily into practice, and that in future the countries concerned will work out a code of conduct in accordance with international law.


                      


The chairman’s statement at the EAS summit mentioned promoting maritime co-operation “including [combating] sea piracy, search and rescue at sea, marine environment, maritime security, maritime connectivity, freedom of navigation, fisheries and others of co-operation.” Japan’s Prime Minister Noda made the case at the summit for a maritime forum where government officials and private-sector experts could have a wide-ranging and free exchange of views on maritime co-operation.
 
On disaster management, the ARF meeting reached a common understanding on furthering regional co-operation. The ASEAN Co-ordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance in Jakarta is expected to play a central role in building a disaster-related information network across the region and developing concrete measures for disaster management, and Japan will certainly keep up its own assistance to the centre.

Many of the countries attending the EAS meeting stressed the need for response capabilities like disaster emergency relief. Prime Minister Noda announced Japan’s readiness to host an international conference this summer on major disasters and this will be an opportunity for Japan to share lessons learned from the Fukushima earthquake and tsunami in March of last year. The aim must be to promote co-operation and make the region more resilient to natural disasters as part of a broader regional co-operation exercise.



The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing rapid change, and that demands policies to maximise growth opportunities while minimising risks. That’s why Koichiro Gemba, Japan’s foreign minister, has proposed “open and multilayered networks” with countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

“Multilayered” means multinational co-operation on various activities that can be promoted through bilateral, trilateral, or multi-lateral mechanisms. Work within the ARF and EAS frameworks is already in line with this concept and Japan is promoting trilateral dialogues such as a Japan- China-Korea and Japan-U.S.-Australia.

Japan believes that these networks must be open to all the countries of the region as the establishment of such networks in the Asia-Pacific region would definitely require China’s full participation. But the rule-making needed as the foundation for such a network must obviously adhere to international law, and the ARF meeting’s final declaration clearly reflected this concern.
 
So what lessons from the OSCE`s experience are relevant to Asians’ budding efforts at defining and establishing regional architectures? In spite of the very significant socio-economic and political differences that exist between the Asia-Pacific region and Europe, the OSCE’s confidence and security building measures (CSBMs) are worth looking at closely.

The CSBMs aim to reduce the risk of conflict by increasing trust among participating OSCE states, and by contributing to greater transparency in the field of military planning and other activities. The Vienna Document, which is the key to understanding these OSCE efforts, obliges annual exchanges of information on existing military forces, the structure of armed forces and the major weapons and equipment systems they have. It also requires annual information exchanges on defence planning and budgets.


                    


The adoption of such measures in the Asia-Pacific region would do much to promote confidence and trust among Asian countries. A few steps are already being taken in this direction in the ARF framework, one has been the publication for more than a decade of an Annual Security Outlook based on contributions from ARF countries. In 2010, ARF ministers widened its scope with the Simplified Standardised Format, which includes publication of national defence doctrines, defence expenditure, and the total number of personnel in a country’s armed forces.
