IT STARTED ON WEDNESDAY (17 MAR) AND WILL CONTINUE TO MARCH 30. IT IS THE 28TH IN A SERIES OF SEATO MANOEUVRES AND EXERCISES, AND INVOLVES DECISIONS AND EXECUTION OF ORDERS, BUT WITHOUT ACTUAL DEPLOYMENT OF FORCES.

HE SAID THAT THE SITUATION IN SOUTH-EAST ASIA, PRESENTED A THREAT TO THE INDEPENDENCE AND SOVEREIGNTY OF VARIOUS COUNTRIES IN THIS REGION. THE POWER OF SEATO FORCES WOULD SERVE AS A CONCRETE ASSURANCE OF PEACE AND SECURITY OF THIS AREA.
