Comments on Tommy Koh “Building fraternity amongst East Asian states”, 8/04/2010, http://www.eastasiaforum.org/2010/04/08/building-fraternity-amongst-east-asian-states/
Tommy Koh's idea of focusing on the future and letting go of the past is excellent.
The idea of open and inclusiveness is interesting and needs better definition.
Being open and inclusive does not equate to that the East Asian Community can be the United Nations.
One needs to be practical and work with a well defined concept, rather than being confused or attempting too much in the name of open and inclusiveness.
That is not the right approach.
