“As your Permanent Representative of St Kitts and Nevis I was honoured to meet H. E. Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, Permanent Representative of Vietnam to the United Nations,” said Ambassasor H.E Ian Macdonald Liburd , SKN Permanent Representative to the United Nations
Earlier this month Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, made the statement in an interview with the Vietnam News Agency’s reporters about Vietnam’s plans at the UN: From now until the end of the year Vietnam will continue to complete its term as a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) and fulfill its commitments to the international community the country made when it began joining the council, a diplomat has said.
The next three months will be full of challenges and new problems, so Vietnam needs to continue to strive to make its voice heard, he said.
The country will even have to be more responsible and contribute more practical contributions in the next three months, Quy said in the context that there are only three months left until Vietnam completes its term as a non-permanent member of the UNSC for the 2020-2021 term.
Regarding the participation as well as the message of President Nguyen Xuan Phuc at the high-level general debate of the UN General Assembly, the ambassador said that the State leader’s presence made a very special impression. The theme throughout all four discussion sessions attended by the President was the image of a Vietnam with strong aspirations, wishing to contribute more responsibly to regional and global affairs. This was the reason why countries highly appreciated Vietnam, expecting the country to contribute not only in terms of policy and understanding but also resources to the regional and global affairs.
Ambassador Liburd engaged in fruitful discussions with his Vietnamese counterpart and expressed his desire to engage in similar discussions with representatives of all 192 members of the UN .
” I look forward to meeting with all 192 members of the sovereign states that are members of the United Nations to bring the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis to a better diplomatic relations worldwide and create synergy because there are so many commonalities between us. That I feel is my number one priority. – COUNTRY ABOVE SELF !”
