Abstract:

This memorandum assesses ways in which the United States, especially the US Army, might to be able to influence events now, so that, insofar as is possible, the situation in the ASEAN area in 1985 or 1995 is compatible with US interests. The author foresees the greatest US impact on ASEAN developments as resulting from the maintenance of a military presence in the Philippines and the Pacific which is not perceived to be decreasing. He concludes that ASEAN will more likely have the characteristics compatible with US interest in 1985 and 2000 if training facilities for ASEAN personnel are made available on reasonable terms, if mutually beneficial bilateral and multilateral cooperative programs are continued and perhaps marginally extended, and if requests for military equipment are considered according to rational criteria, understood by ASEAN officials, and applied evenly.
