Vietnam has also set up a peacekeeping centre to give training to peacekeeping personnel to ensure they meet the requirements of the UN, he noted.

The ambassador highlighted need to address the root of conflicts on the basis of dialogue and peaceful measures, seeking long-term and comprehensive solutions to conflicts in terms of politics, security, economics and humanity.

He also underscored the necessity of strengthening preventive diplomacy to prevent conflicts and handle disputes through peaceful methods in conformity with international law.

Themed “Peacekeeping operations, new trends”, the session was held at the proposal of Russia – the UN Security Council Chair in June, 2014.
