Ambassador Dang held a meeting with U Lacroix to discuss measures to promote co-operation between Viet Nam and the UN in peacekeeping operations.

At the meeting, Ambassador Dang thanked the UN for backing the country's efforts to participate in peacekeeping activities.

The Ambassador emphasized that promoting co-operation with the UN, including increasing participation in peacekeeping activities, is one of the nation's current foreign priorities.

The country will continue to support the UN's goals and programs to the best of its ability to participate, including its commitments to increase the proportion of female Vietnamese soldiers as part of the UN's peacekeeping forces, he added.

Within its capacity, the nation will also continue to support and call on others to offer stronger support for the UN as it seeks to overcome existing difficulties and challenges in terms of peacekeeping operations, especially the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis.

This is in addition to difficulties in implementing the UN peacekeeping mission and addressing emerging challenges to international peace and security.

As part of this occasion, the Ambassador suggested that Lacroix and relevant agencies of the UN continue to support the country in capacity building, especially its training capacity for military forces and peacekeeping police, as well as in the rotation of forces at missions and other practical assistance. This will help the nation to better meet the requirements and needs of the UN in the process of carrying out peacekeeping operations.

The UN official added that he had directly witnessed and was impressed to see the Vietnamese Engineers Company successfully complete the difficult tasks assigned at the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA).

The UN Under Secretary-General went on to affirm the UN's readiness to support Vietnam in the process of preparing forces, training, testing, and conducting its pre-feasibility assessment, as well as building other necessary capacities that Vietnam does not yet have enough of.

He therefore agreed that the two sides will actively co-ordinate to identify collaboration policies and fields that the UN is in demand of and that Vietnam has experience in, whilst further ramping up ties between Viet Nam and the UN./.
