According to Puentevella, his push for immediate ASEAN integration is one way to “ease conflicts” among other nations, while particularly mentioning the current issue between Indonesia and 30-year old Mary Jane Veloso who was recently sentenced to death for drug trafficking in the country.

“It’s a very small world; we need to be brothers and sisters,” Puentevella added.

Puentevella also took the opportunity to talk to the Indonesian envoy about the issue after the meeting, and hopes that the country’s lament can reach President Joko Widodo to spare the life of Veloso.
