At Tuesday’s reception in New York for Pauline Tamesis, resident coordinator of the UN in Vietnam, Giang said Vietnam and the UN share the same goals and need to step up co-operation in areas of mutual interest.

Ambassador Giang briefed Tamesis on what Vietnam will promote at the UN in the near future: education, disease prevention, climate change response, and energy transition.

Tamesis praised Vietnam’s contributions to UN activities and its efforts to uphold multilateralism and multilateral co-operation, calling Vietnam a model of cooperation with the UN.

Tamesis said Vietnam should continue to support reforming the UN’s development system and actively participate in making policies and plans for further socio-economic development.
