During the meetings, Ambassador Nguyen emphasized the importance of multilateralism and UNESCO's role and contributions in addressing emerging global challenges, preserving peace and security and promoting sustainable development.

She affirmed Viet Nam's consistent foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, multilateralization, and diversification, highlighting the country's policy of considering culture, science, and education as essential motivations for rapid and sustainable development.

The Vietnamese diplomat underscored Viet Nam's efforts in fulfilling its commitments under UNESCO's conventions to which the nation is a signatory.

The Ambassador thanked UNESCO for its support, especially in implementing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation between the Vietnamese Government and the organization in the 2021-2025 period.

She hoped the MoU would strengthen cooperation with Viet Nam in culture, education, social and natural sciences, and information and communication.

Besides, she called for UNESCO's assistance to Viet Nam in building new heritage dossiers and preserving and promoting UNESCO-recognized heritages.

Nguyen affirmed that Viet Nam would strive to implement its role and responsibilities as a member state of UNESCO, aiming to deepen cooperation between Viet Nam and UNESCO substantively and effectively, thus contributing to the realization of UNESCO's goals and promoting socio-economic development of countries.

For their part, UNESCO officials thanked Viet Nam for its role, participation, support, and positive, effective, and responsible contributions to UNESCO.

They highly valued Viet Nam's concurrent roles in various crucial positions, such as Vice Chair of the UNESCO Committee for the Protection of Cultural Expression Diversity, member of the Executive Board of UNESCO, and member of the World Heritage Committee.

UNESCO officials said they are pleased to observe the fruitful development of cooperation between Viet Nam and UNESCO, considering it a model partnership that should continue to be strengthened.

Additionally, they suggested Viet Nam share its experiences with other UNESCO member countries, particularly those in Africa.

The officials affirmed their commitment to continue boosting cooperation with Viet Nam, accompanying and supporting Viet Nam in implementing education, science, and culture policies./.
