Senggigi, West Nusa Tenggara. Legislators from across Southeast Asia meeting in Lombok have agreed not to go into detail on the South China Sea disputes in order not to escalate tensions on the issue, after it prompted heated debate earlier at the meeting.

Marzuki Alie, president of the Asean Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA) and the speaker of Indonesia’s House of Representatives, said at the close of the group’s 33rd general assembly on Friday that the agreement was reached in order not to escalate tensions on the issue.
