The commitment has its root in women's role and great contributions to Vietnam's history of struggling for national independence and development, Tra told the debate, themed “Strengthening Women's Resilience and Leadership as a Path to Peace in Regions Plagued by Armed Groups.”
She said Vietnam has sent female officers to UN peacekeeping missions and wishes that women will have more favorable conditions to contribute to UN peacekeeping operations, adding that Vietnam has made active contributions to the UN agenda on women, peace and security, especially in its capacity as non-permanent member of the Security Council.
Vietnam is committed to contributing international efforts in promoting the agenda on women, peace and security, the diplomat affirmed.
