During a virtual conference of the UN Security Council held on Tuesday among countries participating in the UNMISS’ activities, Ambassador Quy stressed positive Vietnamese contributions to the UN’s peace keeping activities in the East African nation. This includes the implementation of a level-two field hospital, thereby affirming continued Vietnamese support for the UNMISS’s activities moving forward.
The Ambassador also expressed his hope that the UNMISS’s activities will prove to be suitable for driving changes in South Sudan, including enhancing assistance to the transitional process, along with improving the efficiency of civilians’ protection work.
Furthermore, the Vietnamese diplomat highlighted the significance of ensuring safety for operational UNMISS forces amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as well as the best possible conditions for women to participate in the UNMISS.
The online conference was held with David Shearer, special representative of the UN Secretary General for South Sudan and Head of the UNMISS, in attendance. Participants also listened to a report given by Shearer and discussed the UNMISS’s operation over the past 12 months.
