The Hanoitimes - ASEAN must actively respond to its members’ calls on the South China Sea issues. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has not played a significant role in diffusing the heated quarrel among disputants in the South China Sea (SCS), far below what is expected from this group when dealing with a major regional security concern. Illustrative photo But in reality, regional experts argue that ASEAN has interests, responsibilities, and the ability to actively engage in the issue and contribute to the settlement of the disputes, experts said at “The 5th Ocean Dialogue: ASEAN Cooperation in the South China Sea” held on June 18 in Hanoi. ASEAN’s involvement in the South China Sea disputes ASEAN didn’t involve in the SCS, which is called the East Sea in Vietnam, until the end of the Cold War as it was not an immediate security concern of its members. No interest in antagonizing Beijing, ASEAN … [Read more...] about What is ASEAN’s role in settling South China Sea disputes?

Coffee Photo by mgift One afternoon in November 2017, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Vy Café on Le Thanh Ton Street in HCMC’s District 1 and had a coffee and a chat with Nguyen Cong Hiep, a former employee of the Canadian consulate. Trudeau was wearing a white shirt and has his sleeves casually rolled up. At the café, he ordered a moka robusta that cost VND30,000 ($1.29) a cup. He was sitting on a small folding chair on the sidewalk with a plastic stool for a table like any regular Saigon coffee drinker. This is a typical way of enjoying coffee at this café. Trudeau’s visit brought the shop huge popularity. Photo by VnExpress/Giang Huy In November 2016 Britain’s Prince William was spotted in a café very similar to Vy on a sidewalk in Hanoi’s Pho Bac Street during his first trip to Vietnam. He was with pop star Hong Nhung (pink outfit), popular musician Thanh Bui and actor Xuan Bac, who were ambassadors for a … [Read more...] about What is it about casual Vietnamese food experiences that world leaders find irresistible?

Viet Nam News I remember well the first football match I ever went to. It was an FA Cup match at Anfield in 1981. I was eight-years-old. Liverpool won 4-1 with Kenny Dalglish scoring twice. The following year I was given a season ticket for a Christmas present, which I’m guessing cost my parents around VNĐ1million (US$44). I got the kit too, which again would have cost very little. This season if you want the full Manchester United kit of shirt, shorts and socks it will set you back VNĐ5million. Now I totally understand how times have changed, and on the whole, football has gotten much, much better. It’s far safer for one. Stadiums are much more comfortable and fans are for the large part treated with more respect instead of being herded in and out of grounds like cattle. But despite all these vast improvements, I am concerned about the future of the beautiful game. A few weeks ago, Villarreal announced they had signed former Arsenal midfielder Santi … [Read more...] about What is happening to the beautiful game?
