Hue thanked Malhotra for his contributions and support to Vietnam over the past 32 years.

For his part, Malhotra affirmed that the U.N. always stands side by side with Vietnam in many major activities, as well as regional and international events.

The U.N. has helped the Southeast Asian nation not only in development but also in enhancing its position in the international arena, and closely coordinated with its legislative body.

Most recently, the U.N. has also assisted Vietnam in COVID-19 prevention and control, notably in vaccine access, he said, stressing that such cooperation will certainly be further promoted in the time ahead.
