US delays ASEAN meet over coronavirus fears

Feb 29, 2020 08:52 IST

The United States has delayed an ASEAN summit that was scheduled to take place in Las Vegas next month due to fears of the coronavirus. An official said that “as the international community works together to defeat the novel coronavirus, the United States, in consultation with ASEAN partners, has made the difficult decision to postpone the ASEAN leaders meeting." The Association of South East Asian Nations had been due to be hosted by President Donald Trump on March 14.
