The Vietnamese delegation was led by Ambassador Nguyen Trung Thanh, Vietnam's permanent representative to the United Nations.
The conference provided an opportunity for the international community to share experiences and good practices in addressing the drivers of violent extremism and to build support for the Plan of Action.
Ambassador Thanh said the fight against violent extremism requires joint efforts of the international community and high determination at both national and regional levels.
He reiterated that as a country with many ethnic groups and religions, Vietnam’s consistent policy is to boost unity, national solidarity, and harmony among religions and ethnic groups to ensure equality and non-discrimination. Vietnam calls on countries around the world for more dialogues and discussions to reach a common knowledge of violent extremism towards implementing measures to prevent and combat the wide spread of extremism at the global level and in each nation.
