HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam supported endeavours to reform UN development and promised to use inter-governmental negotiations to achieve it.
Ha Minh Hue, member of the Vietnam NA Committee for External Affairs said yesterday during a session of the IPU-132's Standing Committee on UN Affairs.
He proposed the UN and the UN Security Council push ahead with the reform in a comprehensive, balanced, equal and transparent manner.
He noted that Viet Nam was actively implementing the "One United Nations" initiative and was ready to share experience with other countries.
The country had also contributed to reforming the working style of the UN Security Council while serving as a non-permanent member of the council in the 2008-2009 tenure, Hue said. Reforming the UN Security Council, the most powerful organ in the UN, attracted great attention at the debate. Delegates reviewed the achievements and challenges to the UN seven decades after its foundation.
The discussions also focused on how to help the UN carry out its missions more effectively, relations between the UN and multilateral forums such as G20, and social media's impact on encouraging cross-border exchanges.
The same day, the Standing Committee on International Peace and Security convened to review the outcomes of its session held at the IPU-131 in October 2014, and elect leaders.
During the sitting, the committee will consider a resolution on the threats posed by cyber warfare to global peace and security. — VNS
