Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Tran Thanh Man said: "We need to step up the struggle for peace, disarmament, and demilitarization, and completely abolish nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. At the same time, it is necessary to strengthen cooperation to effectively deal with transnational threats and traditional and non-traditional security challenges, and promote sustainable and equitable development for all countries."

As the host of the 22nd Assembly of the World Peace Council, Vietnam proposed strategic orientations, an effective action plan, and practical solutions to improve the Council’s performance and contribute to world peacekeeping efforts.

Chairman of the Vietnam Peace Committee Uong Chu Luu said: "Upholding international solidarity, democracy, wisdom, and responsibility, the Assembly focused on strategic orientations and practical action programs to unite organizations, individuals, and peace movements in the struggle for a peaceful world and fair and sustainable development for all of us."
