HÀ NỘI — Head of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations Hoàng Bình Quân attended a virtual international round-table conference of political parties on Monday.
Chaired by President of the United Russia Party and Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, the event drew leaders of parties from China, Japan, Germany, Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Ukraine, Serbia, Spain and Việt Nam.
Addressing the event, which focused on security co-operation amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Quân shared Việt Nam’s initial success and experience in the fight against the pandemic and highlighted the leadership of the Communist Party of Việt Nam, drastic actions of the Government and public trust and consensus.
He suggested enhancing policy co-ordination, timely and regular sharing of information and experience, ensuring the access of citizens in pandemic-hit areas to information, treatment and humanitarian assistance.
Quân proposed that law enforcement agencies and peoples worldwide increase co-operation to cope with non-traditional security threats and uphold the role of international organisations and multilateral mechanisms to promote anti-pandemic efforts and ensure global security.
Delegates called on parties and countries to reinforce responsible co-operation, follow international agreements on the ban of use and development of biological weapons, and strive to study, produce and share medicines and vaccines for COVID-19.
Concluding the event, Medvedev highlighted a need for co-operation among political parties and nations to cope with global security issues amid the complex developments of the pandemic.
He spoke highly of the outcomes in Việt Nam’s fight against COVID-19 as well as the Vietnamese Party and Government’s stance on placing the people as a top priority in the effort. He also took note of suggestions offered by Việt Nam. — VNS
