During a meeting with Ambassador Dang Hoang Giang, Permanent Representative of Viet Nam to the United Nations (UN), in New York on May 10, Malhotra emphasised that though his term in Viet Nam had ended, he always had great affection for the country and people of Vietnam.
He said he is proud to contribute to the Viet Nam-UN cooperation relationship, and is honoured to be awarded the Friendship Order and many insignias for his contributions.
For his part, Ambassador Giang thanked Malhotra for his contributions during his tenure in Viet Nam to promoting peace, security and development, and strengthening the relations between the UN and Viet Nam. In the coming time, Viet Nam will continue to focus in many fields, on promoting issues related to education, food, climate change adaptation, healthcare, energy transition and marine cooperation, he said.
The diplomat expressed his hope that Malhotra, who has many years of experience working in UN agencies and the field of development, will continue to give advice, share experience and propose recommendations to Viet Nam to speed up the implementation of sustainable development goals.
