The 31st Diplomatic Conference unanimously approved a resolution and an action plan with specific measures and directions, which aim to promote the stability and efficiency of foreign relations, with the spirit “heart-to-heart diplomacy, affection, sincerity, trust, equality, respect, efficiency, and mutual development”.

Vietnam will promote and elevate multilateral external relations; resolutely and persistently uphold independence, sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity; maintain a peaceful and stable environment for development; and promote international law and settling disputes by peaceful means.
