NDO/VNA – Vietnam condemns terrorism in any form, and calls on all countries to strengthen cooperation, share information on border management and control all risks of terrorist attacks and financing, said Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, head of the Vietnamese permanent mission to the UN.

Addressing the UN Security Council’s online meeting on August 24 to discuss the 11th report of the UN Secretary General on the threat posed by the self-claimed Islamic State (IS) to international peace and security, the ambassador committed Vietnam’s anti-terrorism policy on the basis of abiding by the UN Charter and international law.

The diplomat stressed the need for comprehensive settlement of terrorism risk and the elimination of favourable conditions for terrorists, thus promoting economic development, dealing with conflicts and building an equal and united society capable of fighting extreme violence and terrorism.

At the meeting, many countries also showed concerns over IS’s activities in conflict zones as well as humanitarian matters in Syria’s detention camps. They stressed the need to enhance international cooperation in anti-terrorism.
