Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh left Hanoi on September 17 afternoon for the U.S. to attend the General Debate of the 78th session of the U.N. General Assembly.

The General Debate will take place under the theme of “Rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity: Accelerating action on the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals towards peace, prosperity, progress and sustainability for all.”

As an active and responsible member of the international community, and with positions in many major multilateral mechanisms, Vietnam has made effective and substantial contributions in all aspects at the multilateral forums, especially the U.N.

As part of his trip to the U.S. from September 17-23, Chinh will conduct bilateral activities to deepen the bilateral Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, concretize outcomes of the recent visit to Vietnam by President Joe Biden, and implement agreements and commitments made by the high-ranking leaders of the two countries in the spirit of the joint statement on elevating the Vietnam-U.S. relations to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership for peace, cooperation and sustainable development.
