According to Mr. Athanasios Pafilis, WPC Secretary General, it is very important that the 22nd Assembly of WPC was held in Vietnam.
"First, the war history of Vietnam. It is a symbol showing that when the people are united, we can win. The example history of Vietnam show that if people wake up they can protect the nation's community values.. Secondly, it is that Vietnam is very peaceful country with clear path of peace in negotiation, according to the international law and the rights of the sea."

The Filipino delegate emphasized that Vietnam's peaceful thought lies in the principles of socialism.
