The Ministry of National Defence will coordinate with other ministries and agencies to build and submit to the Government a decree prescribing detailed regulations in connection with certain articles of the above-said resolution.
It will also build projects on the implementation of the resolution and submit them to the PM for approval.
Joint efforts will also be made to popularise the resolution and legal documents giving detailed guidance for the implementation, in order to raise public awareness of Vietnam’s joining UN peacekeeping operations.
