Turkey’s Relations with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN)

Institutional relations between Turkey and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) were established when Turkey became a signatory of the ASEAN Treaty of Amity and Cooperation in Southeast Asia (TAC) on 23 July 2010 and thus, the foundation of sectoral cooperation was laid down.

Turkish Embassy in Jakarta has been accredited to ASEAN since 2010 as a result of the efforts put forward for appointing an Ambassador to the Association. More frequent contacts and studies at experts’ level with ASEAN Secretariat and main member countries for the establishment of sectoral cooperation are aimed in the upcoming period.
