At the debate, UN Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo and other participants stressed the UNSC's role and responsibility in conflict prevention.

They appealed to the effective implementation of UNSC Resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security and to promote youth involvement in and contribution to peacebuilding.

Many also highly valued the UN Secretary-General's New Agenda for Peace, focusing on conflict prevention.

They welcomed the Peacebuilding Commission's role in enhancing cooperation among UN agencies, international and regional organizations, and member states to prevent conflicts and maintain sustainable peace and security.

Addressing the event, Chargé d'affaires Nguyen Hoang Nguyen, Deputy Permanent Representative of Viet Nam to the United Nations, called on the UNSC to adopt a comprehensive, inclusive, and people-centred approach and pay due attention to resolving root causes of conflicts to break the vicious circle of underdevelopment, inequality, injustice, and violence.

He held that the UNSC should better use available tools like preventive diplomacy, reconciliation, and peaceful settlement of disputes based on international law and the UN Charter. It should also prioritize more investment for trust-building efforts and early warning mechanisms.

The diplomat emphasized the importance of women's empowerment in conflict prevention, affirming that Viet Nam has taken concrete steps to enhance women's leadership and engagement at all management levels.

The country pledges to continue promoting women's participation in and contributions to UN peacekeeping operations.

Viet Nam also considers the settlement of youth-related issues like education, employment, and welfare as the key to preventing extremism, violence, as well as risks of conflicts or conflict recurrence./.
