NDO/VNA - Vietnam will maintain its active contributions to UN peacekeeping efforts in South Sudan, said Phan Dinh Trac, Politburo member, Secretary of the Party Central Committee and head of its Commission for Internal Affairs, during his meeting with the African country’s Vice President Rebecca Nyandeng De Mabior in New York on September 23 (local time).

This is the highest-level meeting between the leaders of the Vietnamese Party and South Sudan since the two countries established diplomatic relations in February 2019.

Trac appreciated the progress in the two countries' relations since the establishment of the diplomatic ties, which, he said, helps create an important foundation to promote multifaceted cooperation at bilateral and multilateral levels.

He congratulated South Sudan’s Government and people on their achievements in the transition process, believing that relevant parties will continue to well implement the 2018 Peace Agreement, thus bringing about long-lasting peace, stability and development to the country.

He also expressed his hope that the South Sudanese Government continues to create favourable conditions for operations of and ensure security and safety for Vietnamese soldiers participating in peacekeeping forces in the nation.

The Vietnamese official informed the South Sudanese President of the main achievements that Vietnam has achieved in the Doi Moi (Renewal) cause over the past 35 years and the main outcomes of the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam. He shared experience in implementing Vietnam's foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, diversification and multilateralisation of relations, and emphasised the role of the Party's external relations in creating an important political foundation to stabilise, expand and tighten Vietnam's bilateral relations with other countries.

Vice President Rebecca conveyed greetings and thanks from President Salva Kiir Mayardit for the support of the Vietnamese Party, Government and people over the past time; and appreciated Vietnam's role as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in contribution to South Sudan's peace.

She noted that South Sudan wishes to strengthen and expand diplomatic relations with all countries, including Vietnam, and continue to receive assistance from the international community.

She also expressed her deep impression on the image of a successfully transformed Vietnam, affirming that South Sudan will learn from Vietnam's development experience in many fields such as economy, trade, agriculture and health.
