The Vietnamese delegation, led by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Ha Kim Ngoc, emphasised the nation’s consistent stance on supporting radical nuclear weapon disarmament in order prevent nuclear weapon proliferation.

Other contributions include upholding the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes, while highlighting the need for the international community to make every effort in order to solve common nuclear challenges.

The delegation also shared opinions on issues which are of great international concern, including upholding the role of the NPT, stressing the humanitarian consequences of the potential use of nuclear weapons.

As the vice president of the conference, Vietnam and other countries actively promoted and managed its working agenda.

The Vietnamese delegation also worked alongside ASEAN member states and non-aligned countries as it sought to promote the priorities of these countries.

The conference’s discussions primarily focused on all three elements of the treaty – non-proliferation, disarmament, and the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

Although member states could not reach a consensus on a final document, they all stressed the importance of the NPT to the global non-proliferation and disarmament mechanism, as well as the need to ramp up efforts to boost this mechanism moving forward.
