At the Summit of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Contact Group in response to the COVID-19 pandemic held in Baku, Azerbaijan, on Thursday, Khoi said Vietnam has been contributing to international efforts on COVID-19 prevention by providing medical supplies to countries and making donations to the UN's COVID-19 Response Fund.
To promote post-pandemic recovery, Vietnam suggested that NAM cooperation should strengthen solidarity based on respecting the sovereignty and diversity of members, upholding the voice of members at international forums, promoting cooperation mechanisms within the NAM framework and implementing people-centred recovery policies, Khoi said.
The summit closed on Friday with a summary statement from the chairing country. Azerbaijan will continue to hold NAM Chairmanship until the end of this year before handing it over to Uganda.
