Viet Nam has successfully performed its role, demonstrated through its extensive participation in the discussions to push the UNGA to approve agendas covering all aspects of international life. It has also fully participated in proposing and planning essential decisions for the world.

During the last term, Viet Nam and several countries have proposed initiatives and solutions on many major UN issues, such as upholding international marine law and law of the sea, water security, and responsibility to prevent and control crimes against humanity, to name but a few.

Besides, the country also joined the preparation of a report of the UN Secretary-General on the organization's activities, a report from the International Court of Justice (ICJ), and a report from the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Notably, Viet Nam chaired the UNGA to discuss and pass a resolution requesting the ICJ to provide advisory opinions on the issue of climate change and explanations on organizing a high-level meeting on readiness for disease responses.

Its proactive and positive participation aimed to make concrete and practical contributions to the joint work and significant priorities of the UN and the international community, promote international cooperation and solidarity, and strengthen multilateralism to effectively respond to increasingly harsh emerging global challenges.

Additionally, Viet Nam supported the President of the UNGA to smoothly and effectively run the common affairs of the UN, including major high-level events and essential sessions of the UNGA, as well as coordinate discussions and negotiations to develop documents and processes with long-term strategic orientation of the UN for the coming years./.
