In an interview granted to the Vietnam News Agency, Ambassador Dang Hoang Giang, Permanent Representative of Viet Nam to the UN added through the visit, Viet Nam also highlights its policy on promoting multilateral diplomacy in the international arena.
Ambassador Giang announced that the Prime Minster was scheduled to meet key leaders of the UN, thereby affirming Vietnam's contributions to the bloc's common agenda, especially in addressing global challenges.
He recalled Viet Nam’s major contributions to the UN since it became a member of the organisation in 1977, including the fact of its twice holding the position of a non-permanent member of the Security Council and twice for the position of a member of the Economic and Social Council, as well as its joining of UN mechanisms on human rights, culture, and education.
On Viet Nam-UN relations in the time to come, Ambassador Giang said the country’s position and role, consolidated and developed over the past, will continue to be heightened. Viet Nam will continue to make use of the UN’s resources and experience in its sustainable socio-economic development and, at the same time, also continue its important contributions to the common agenda of the organisation on peace, development, and socio-economic matters.
The ultimate goal is for both the UN and Viet Nam to join hand in hand toward the noble objectives of the UN, keeping the future generations from the tragedies of wars, and bringing about peace and stability to all the people in the world, he concluded.
