The article noted that throughout the Vietnamese history, foreign affairs have played an extremely important role, not only contributing to protecting the country's independence, sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity, but also helping to promote its national construction and development.

Argentina’s Equilibrium Global news website runs a story highlighting the unique values of Vietnam’s “Bamboo diplomacy.”

It said that at the National Conference on Foreign Affairs held in Hanoi on December 14, 2021, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong emphasized the determination to build and develop a modern Vietnamese diplomacy imbued with strong national identity – the “Vietnamese bamboo diplomacy.”

Vietnam’s external policy aims to ensure a peaceful and stable environment, taking advantage of favorable international factors for the national reform, protecting and enhancing the country’s position.

The journal commented that the “Bamboo diplomacy” of Vietnam shows the strategic balance in relations with world powers and the world based on the core principle of ensuring the national interest, independence and self-reliance in external relations, which have been deeply ingrained in President Ho Chi Minh's diplomatic ideology.

The article underlined that Vietnam has been elected to many international organizations and performed the role of Vice President of the U.N. General Assembly’s 77th session, a member of the U.N. Human Rights Council in the 2023-2025 tenure and the International Law Commission in the 2023-2027 tenure.

Vietnam’s engagement in meetings of many U.N. agencies have fully demonstrated the country's increasingly active position, role and contribution in bilateral and multilateral diplomacy and promoting international cooperation on the global scale. This is a vivid demonstration of achievements of the “Bamboo diplomacy,” it said.

The article added that the “Bamboo diplomacy” has elevated Vietnam's role in the international arena, helping the country maintain relations with world powers while ensuring national interests.

It affirmed that by applying the “Bamboo diplomacy,” Vietnam has affirmed that it is a trustworthy partner and an active and responsible member in the international and regional integration process.
