VGP – Over the past 75 years, peace, cooperation and friendship have been thriving while poverty and diseases have been on the retreat and the life of humankind has been changing for the better.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc stressed the point in his video message sent to the United Nations General Assembly High-level Meeting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.

The Government chief expressed his belief that these immense achievements would not have been possible without the fundamental principles of the UN Charter, and the United Nations itself, as the “center for harmonizing the actions of nations”.

The world today is faced with unprecedented challenges, emphasized Phuc, adding that the COVID-19 pandemic, together with instabilities, conflicts, great power competition, power politics, and climate change is threatening the sustainable peace and development of nations.

“The greater the challenge we face, the more we need to work together in solidarity and strengthen multilateralism with the UN at its core. The UN Charter and international law must be observed. The independence, sovereignty, and territorial integrity of states must be respected. The people must be at the heart of all efforts for development so that no one is left behind,” read the message.

Today, Viet Nam is enjoying vibrant growth, and pursuing extensive economic restructuring and active international integration, participating as a responsible member at numerous multilateral forums, especially the United Nations.

The country is also exerting all efforts for the goal of a prosperous people and a strong nation that enjoys equality, democracy and the fruits of civilization.

Thanks to the collaboration with all international partners and with our own efforts, Viet Nam has managed to basically contain the COVID-19, and a strong rebound of our economy is expected to follow.

He took this opportunity to extend to fellow UN member states the gratitude for entrusting Viet Nam with a non-permanent membership at the UN Security Council for 2020-2021.

The Southeast Asian country is doing its utmost to fulfill this mandate while concurrently working closely with fellow ASEAN member states to build an ASEAN Community of unity, resilience and prosperity.

PM Phuc pledged that Viet Nam is determined to work alongside all other nations around the world to safeguard peace and realize the UN Sustainable Development Goals./.
