HÀ NỘI – Minister of Foreign Affairs Bùi Thanh Sơn has highlighted the significance of Ambassador Nguyễn Hồng Thao’s re-election to the International Law Commission (ILC) for the 2023-2027 tenure.
Talking with the press, Sơn said following the Party and State’s policy of promoting multilateral diplomacy, Việt Nam not only successfully performed important duties as ASEAN Chair 2020 and a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for 2020-2021 but also actively and proactively sent officers to work in prestigious international organisations.
Ambassador Thao’s re-election to the ILC with 145 approval votes was evidence of the sound external policy of the Party and the State, and reflected the international community’s support and trust of Việt Nam, affirming the country’s enhanced stature and prestige on international arena.

UNESCO has launched a series of collected works – People writing their own history. Instead of just tracing the past of nations, these collections aim to provide a greater understanding of civilizations.
The world’s memory is composed of more than just kings and heroes, battles and conquests, great cathedrals and monumental undertakings.
Through this broad perspective, readers gain a global understanding of the evolution of societies, flourishing of cultures, major currents of exchange and interaction with other parts of the world.
These collections also aim to provide a culturally relevant perspective. They provide the point of view of the populations concerned, whose past has often been distorted, discredited or treated as peripheral to the history of the colonizers and the dominant nations – those who usually write history. The idea here is to rediscover a people’s consciousness and the vision it develops of its own destiny. This shift in perspective is reflected by the significant number of local historians, with impeccable academic credentials, who contributed to these collections as editors and authors.
Maritime security is being undermined at an alarming pace by challenges around contested boundaries, the depletion of natural resources and armed attacks — from piracy to terrorism — senior United Nations officials told the Security Council today, as world leaders adopted a presidential statement outlining their concerns over the increasing frequency of such events.
In a presidential statement (documentS/PRST/2021/15) presented by the Prime Minister of India, Council President for August, the 15-member organ noted the problem of transnational organized crimes committed at sea — including illicit trafficking in narcotic drugs, smuggling of migrants and illicit trafficking in firearms — as well as the “deplorable” loss of life and adverse impact on international trade stemming from such activities.

In 2007, Vietnam was elected as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the term of 2008-2009. This is the first time that Vietnam has participated in the UN’s most important body for international peace and security.

Tehran, Iran – The United States has broken with all other permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and unilaterally declared the re-imposition of all UN sanctions against Iran – a claim rejected by Iran and the international community, including Washington’s close allies, as having no legal basis.
World leaders came together, virtually, on Monday to mark the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, as the coronavirus pandemic and economic disruption challenge the effectiveness and solidarity of the organisation that was set up after the horrors of World War II.
VGP – The assumption of the non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council offers Viet Nam a good opportunity to make constructive and responsible contribution to the common work of the international community, promote the country’s position and deepen cooperation with other countries and major partners.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The United States changed its mind and is now refusing to sign a letter that would have authorized the U.N. Security Council to hold a meeting on the human rights situation in North Korea, diplomats said Monday.
Without support from the United States, European and other countries that wanted the U.N.’s most powerful body to discuss human rights in North Korea can’t go ahead Tuesday because they are now one vote short of the minimum nine “yes” votes required, the diplomats said, speaking on condition of anonymity because discussions were private.
Bức thư gửi tới trẻ em thế giới của Bà Henrietta Fore, Giám đốc Điều hành UNICEF nhân dịp kỷ niệm 30 năm Công ước Liên Hợp Quốc về Quyền Trẻ em
Bà Henrietta Fore, Giám đốc Điều hành UNICEF
Gửi các con, trẻ em của thế giới hôm nay và mai sau,
Cách đây 30 năm, trong bối cảnh trật tự thế giới thay đổi – sự sụp đổ của Bức tường Berlin, sự tuy tàn của chế độ phân biệt chủng tộc apartheid, sự ra đời của mạng lưới toàn cầu world wide web – thế giới đã đoàn kết lại để bảo vệ trẻ em và tuổi thơ của các con. Mặc dù phần lớn những bậc cha mẹ thời kỳ đó đã lớn lên dưới sự lãnh đạo của những chế độ độc tài hay những chính phủ thất bại, họ vẫn hi vọng cuộc sống tốt đẹp hơn, nhiều cơ hội hơn và nhiều quyền được thực hiện cho con em của mình. Vì vậy, khi các vị lãnh đạo toàn cầu đoàn kết lại vào năm 1989 trong một dịp rất hiếm hoi nhằm đưa ra một cam kết mang tính lịch sử đối với trẻ em thế giới để bảo vệ và thực hiện đầy đủ quyền trẻ em, chúng ta có một sự hi vọng thực sự cho thế hệ mai sau.
