Defence ministers or their representatives from the 10 ASEAN states and the eight 'Plus' countries (Australia, China, India, Japan, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, Russia and the US) will attend the ADMM-Plus.

Minister Payne said the ADMM-Plus is the region’s pre-eminent regional security framework and was important for fostering practical military co-operation.

"The region must work together to address common challenges, including North Korea’s provocative actions, the evolving terrorism threat and continued tensions in the South China Sea," Minister Payne said.
