Washington to ink SE Asia pact to counter China

The signing by the United States this week of a friendship pact with Southeast Asia sends a strong signal of its desire to deepen ties and counter China's increasing influence, diplomats said.

The treaty commits signatories to three basic principles: the peaceful settlement of disputes, non-recourse to the use of force and non-interference in domestic affairs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the American government's voracious appetite for the use of martial force as a way of "resolving disputes", and interference in other countries' affairs to achieve a specific desired outcome, it's going to be fun watching the US adhere to the tenants of this treaty!
