NDO/VNA – President Nguyen Xuan Phuc will attend and deliver a speech at a high-level open debate on cooperation between the United Nations (UN) and the African Union (AU), which will be held virtually October 28.

The President’s attendance is made at the invitation of his Kenyan counterpart Uhuru Kenyatta who assumes the rotating Presidency of the UN Security Council (UNSC) in October 2021, according to a statement released by the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The debate will take the theme of “Renewing solidarity to successfully deliver peace and security in a changing conflict environment”.

The Vietnamese leader’s attendance at the event manifests Vietnam’s role and responsible contributions to enhancing cooperation between the UN and regional organisations, following its successes recorded in April 2021 when the country acted as President of the UNSC.
