Major General Hoang Kim Phung, VNDPKO Director, informed General Vinh on the unit’s task performance over the past time in the field of UN peacekeeping operations.

According to General Phung, Vietnam’s participation in the UN peacekeeping operations has contributed to heightening the position of the Vietnamese military, people, and the country in the international arena.

Lieutenant General Le Huy Vinh speaks at the meeting.

2019 was a successful year for the VNDPKO as the Level-2 Field Hospital Rotation 1 was presented with the UN noble Medal after finishing tasks at the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).

Addressing the meeting, Geneal Vinh highly appreciated the VNDPKO’s efforts in performing its assigned missions, while asking the unit to continue attaching much importance to political education and training for troops, especially foreign language courses, so as to enable forces who will be deployed to UN peacekeeping missions to fulfill their tasks.

In addition, the VNDPKO should also make good preparations for Party congresses at all levels as well as international conferences on UN peacekeeping operations in 2020, including the Women with UN peacekeeping operations workshop.
