NDO – Implementing the 13th National Party Congress’ Resolution on boosting and raising the level of multilateral diplomacy as well as demonstrating responsibility and contributing to the common work of the international community, President Nguyen Xuan Phuc led a high-ranking delegation of Vietnam to attend the high-level General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly’s 76th session and hold a number of bilateral activities in the US.

This is an important foreign activity, thereby conveying the message of a dynamic and innovative country with great aspiration for development, love for peace and upholding multilateralism to international friends.

With the outstanding achievements of the past 76 years of development, the UN has affirmed its very important role in international political life and become the indispensable foundation of a peaceful, prosperous and equal world. During the past 44 years as a member, Vietnam has always highly hailed its cooperation with the UN in protecting and promoting national interests, consolidating a peaceful environment and favourable security for development, international integration and improvement of national status. Vietnam has always actively and proactively participated in and contributes more and more substantively to the activities of the UN.

The role of the UN in global governance has been increasingly upheld in the context that the world has been changing rapidly and unpredictably due to the multi-dimensional impacts of many factors, the prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, strategic competition, continuous conflict and tension in many regions, and sharply emerging non-traditional security challenges.

The high-level General Debate of the 76th session of UN General Assembly was themed "Building Resilience through hope to recover from COVID-19, rebuild sustainably, respond to the needs of the planet, respect the rights of people, and revitalise the United Nations”. Attending the event as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, for the 2020-2021 term, Vietnamese high-ranking delegation, led by President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, emphasised the necessity to strengthen international cooperation and multilateral action as well as consolidate trust to address common challenges, especially in responding to the pandemic, combating climate change, boosting recovery and sustainable development, promoting compliance with international law, preventing and resolving disputes peacefully without the use or threat of force.

As an important cooperation opportunity, President Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s meetings with leaders of participating countries and international organisations on the sidelines of the event will continue to boost friendship and multi-faceted cooperation between Vietnam and other nations, especially major ones, important partners and long-standing friends, in a deep, practical and effective manner. The State leader’s bilateral meetings in the US will contribute to enhancing the comprehensive partnership between Vietnam and the US, in line with the goals and interests of both countries. Positive results in the implementation of the dual goals of controlling the epidemic while accelerating economic recovery in Vietnam are being sent to the countries and partners on the occasion, contributing to consolidating trust and attracting more international investors and enterprises.

State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc led a high-ranking Vietnamese delegation to attend the General Debate of the UN General Assembly's session this year after the 13th National Party Congress was held successfully, outlining new orientations and objectives for the country’s development.

This is also an opportunity for Vietnam to convey a message about a great aspiration and vision for development to international community, continuing to affirming the country’s foreign policy of independence, peace, cooperation, development, multilateralisation and diversification. Vietnam is a an active, proactive, and responsible member that has made effective contributions to the common work of the UN and the international community.
