Speaking on the occasion of Viet Nam's concluding its working term as a non-permanent member of the UNSC, the Indian diplomat held that in the past two years, Viet Nam has prioritised a number of important issues, including the promotion of the resolution on protection of civilian infrastructure in armed conflicts.

Viet Nam issued a presidential statement regarding bomb and mine issues, which is an important matter, especially when terrorist forces are targeting peacekeeping force, he underlined.

India and Viet Nam have coordinated closely at all levels, especially in 2021, he said, adding that the two sides worked together to reach agreements on the contents of many important documents such as resolutions and presidential statements.

Leaders of both sides have shown strong cooperation when discussing important issues in the UNSC agenda, he added.

Ambassador T.S Tirumurti noted that India engaged in the open discussion hosted by Viet Nam on the partnership between the UN and regional organisations, during which India found that Viet Nam, as an ASEAN member, brought important views to the UNSC, especially on the Myanmar issue.

India support all initiatives given by Viet Nam at the UNSC, he stated.

Regarding challenges facing the UNSC in next year, the Indian diplomat held that the council will have much to do in the year, especially when urgent problems such as COVID-19 have still lingered, along with increased conflicts in the world and expanding terrorism.
