The Deputy FM made the statement at a high-level open debate of the UNSC held online on January 6, during which he stressed that Vietnam has a deep understanding of the dangers to peace in unstable contexts.

According to Trung, maintaining international peace and security in the current context requires a comprehensive, inclusive, and systematic approach at all stages of the peace process and with the involvement of all stakeholders.

The root cause of issues must be solved in a comprehensive manner rather than singly, he said, noting that developing countries and nations facing instabilities need to be provided with adequate support to respond to global challenges.

As a key player in maintaining international peace and security, the UNSC should pursue a comprehensive and inclusive approach, maintain solidarity and resilience, and strengthen cooperation with other UN agencies and regional organisations to make positive changes in the field.

The multilateral system, with the UN at its core, should be an important mechanism for coordinating efforts at the global level, Trung said, adding that countries need to strengthen their commitment to complying with the UN Charter and international law.
