Deputy Minister of National Defence Sen. Lieut.

As a guest at the Abyei point, Minister of Education and Construction of Abyei region Nyinkwany Aguer Bol commended the Vietnamese peacekeeping force in Abyei for going beyond their mission, not only fulfilling their peacekeeping duties but also making specific contributions to assisting the local people.
So far Vietnam has sent nearly 800 officers and soldiers to the UN peacekeeping missions in alignment with Vietnam’s foreign policy.
