Vietnam calls on UN Security Council to solve Israel-Palestine conflict

Ambassador Nguyen Phuong Nga, head of Vietnam’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations, has expressed Vietnam’s concern about the current Middle East situation and called on the UN Security Council to uphold its role in encouraging peace talks between all parties.

At the open debate of the UN Security Council, Nga said de-escalating tension on the ground is a prerequisite for any future negotiation and dialogue. She urged all sides to comply strictly with the UN Charter and international law, exercise maximum self-restraint, refrain from any provocative acts and foster a favourable environment for the pursuit of peace. Nga reaffirmed Vietnam’s unconditional support for the legitimate struggle of the Palestinian people for their inalienable rights, including the right to self-determination and establishment of an independent and sovereign state, as well as a two-state solution. She also stressed the need for all parties to respect international law, and refrain from any act of hostility, incitement and violence, to ensure unimpeded access to humanitarian assistance.
