The plan assigned tasks to ministries, ministerial-level, and government agencies to ensure the timely, synchronous, and effective realization of the resolution.
Ministries and agencies will review legal documents to find those that are no longer suitable or are contrary to regulations of the resolution, and propose necessary adjustments, supplements, or the issuing of new ones to replace outdated ones.
The Ministry of National Defence will coordinate with other ministries and agencies to build and submit to the Government a decree prescribing detailed regulations in connection with certain articles of the above-said resolution, according to Vietnamnet.

It will also build projects on the implementation of the resolution and submit them to the PM for approval. Joint efforts will also be made to popularise the resolution and legal documents giving detailed guidance for the implementation, in order to raise public awareness of Viet Nam’s joining UN peacekeeping operations.
Resolution No. 130/2020/QH14 was adopted by the 14th NA during its 10th session on November 13, 2020, and will take effect from July 1, 2021, said TG&VN.
It stipulates principles, forms, fields, forces, authority, procedures for deployment, funding, along with treatment policies, and State management in joining UN peacekeeping operations.
|Since 2014 Vietnam has deployed officers for U.N. peacekeeping missions in South Sudan and the Central African Republic on 29 occasions. In 2018, for the first time ever, it sent a team of military doctors to work at the U.N. field hospital in South Sudan. A second-team left for South Sudan in November 2019. In March 2020 a decision to set up a third team of medical doctors was made, according to VN Express.|
