Has the current trend toward multilateral security dialogue in Asia, most recently evidenced by the establishment of the ASEAN Regional Forum ARF, rendered the bilateral relationship obsolete The conclusion of the Conference was agreement that the relationship continues to be essential for both countries and for the entire Asia-Pacific region.
