    Secretary General Ban Ki Moon meeting with the President of Vietnam Assembly, Nguyen Sinh Hung
Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon has spoke of Vietnam’s responsible efforts and contributions at UN forums, including the country’s participation in the UN Human Rights Council during 2014-2016 and peace-keeping operations.

He had talks with Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh in Hanoi on May 23, during which they agreed to further boost cooperation between the UN and Vietnam.

They emphasised the importance and necessity of adopting a post-2015 Development Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals in September, and reaching a new international agreement on climate change response in December this year.

As one of developing countries affected most by climate change, particularly rising sea level, Vietnam has been active in carrying out drastic measures to cope with the phenomenon, Minh stated.

He also appreciated the UN’s assistance for Vietnam, especially through the implementation of the “Delivering as One” initiative and the construction of the “One UN House” in Vietnam.

Regarding recent developments and tensions in the East Sea, the Deputy PM asked the United Nations to continue keeping a close watch on the issue and urging the parties concerned to address disputes by peaceful means in line with international law.

The Secretary General expressed his concern about the increasing tensions in the East Sea, affirming that the UN is willing to boost the settlement of the disputes by peaceful measures.

He also expressed his hope that ASEAN and China soon conclude negotiations on a Code of Conduct in the East Sea.

After the meeting, both host and guest attended an inaugural ceremony of the “One UN House” and a conference reviewing one year since Vietnam participated in UN peace-keeping missions.-VNA

that's right, that's also why Vietnam was elected as a member of the UN Human Rights Council during 2014-2016 with the highest results.

Vietnam's partipation in the UN peace--keeping forces demonstrates that it is an active and responsible member in international community
