At the Arria-formula meeting of the UNSC themed “Children and Armed Conflict, Repatriation of Children from Conflict Zones: From Camps to Homes, Call for Action”, Tra said preventing conflicts and wars should be done through teaching children to treasure peace and avoid hatred. She called on governments to prevent children from being recruited to armed forces and provide support for them to reintegrate into society. She called on the international community to give financial assistance to children’s reintegration process in post-conflict societies, underlining Vietnam supports the UN’s coordination roles as well as regional organisations’ support for post-conflict countries in poverty alleviation, education popularisation and sustainable development.
