VOV.VN - The nation will continue to accomplish its term as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council (UNSC) and fulfill its commitments to the international community made by the country when it originally joined the council, a local diplomat has said.
Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, permanent representative of Vietnam to the UN, made the statement during a media interview held to discuss Vietnamese plans at the UN from now until the end of the year.
The coming three months will be full of challenges and fresh problems, meaning the country must strive to make its voice heard, he said.
The nation will have to be even more responsible and contribute more practical contributions over the next three months, the local diplomat, especially in the context that there are only three months left until the country completes its term as a non-permanent member of the UNSC for the 2020 to 2021 term.
Regarding the participation, as well as the message of President Nguyen Xuan Phuc at the high-level general debate of the UN General Assembly, the Ambassador said that the State leader’s presence made a very special impression. The theme throughout all four discussion sessions attended by the President were aimed at putting forward an image of a Vietnam that holds strong aspirations and wishes to make greater responsible contributions to regional and global affairs.
This can be viewed as the main reason why international partners highly appreciated the country, expecting it to contribute not only in terms of policy and understanding, but also in resources to regional and global affairs.
According to the diplomat, the fact that the 76th session of the UN General Assembly was held in both face-to-face and online forms for the first time in 75 years reflects the UN’s flexibility and adaptability amid complicated developments caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The main message that countries focused on during the high-level general debate and 76th session of the UN General Assembly was to strive for post-pandemic recovery. This is in addition to improving resilience to recover from the pandemic in a sustainable manner, meet the requirements of the planet, respect the people, and give new lease of life to the UN, he stated.
