Vietnamese Ambassador to Egypt and South Sudan Nguyen Huy Dung recognized the outstanding performance of the three peacekeepers who are the first officers sent by the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security to UNMISS.
Along with performing their international mission, they have acted as “cultural ambassadors” to promote the culture and image of the people and a peace-loving, humane and responsible Vietnam to international friends, he said.
The diplomat said he hoped the officers will continue to work hard and overcome difficulties to complete their tasks.
The Ministry of Public Security’s working group was deployed to UNMISS in October 2022.
All have excellently fulfilled their duties; gradually affirmed the capacity, mettle, professionalism of the People’s Public Security officers; and helped popularise images of Vietnam to the UN and international friends.
The order is a noble award from the UN to honor and recognize each individual's contributions to UN peacekeeping activities.
According to UN regulations, after serving at UNMISS for 6 months or more, if they successfully complete their duties and do not violate discipline, officers will be awarded the UN Peacekeeping Order. The order is a noble award from the UN to honor and recognize each individual's contributions to UN peacekeeping activities.
For each individual and the peacekeeping police force of each country at the UNMISS Mission, receiving the UN Peacekeeping Medal is a particularly important event. The ceremony is also an opportunity for countries to organize promotional activities, introduce their country, people and culture, as well as strengthen relations with the UN and other countries.
