Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, head of the Vietnamese Mission to the United Nations, has called on the international community to make constructive contributions to help Myanmar prevent violence, promote an environment conducive to dialogue and reconciliation while respecting the country's principles of independence, national sovereignty, territorial integrity, and unity.

During an Arria-formula online meeting of the UN Security Council member states which was co-chaired by the UK, the US, Estonia, France, Ireland, and Norway on April 9, Ambassador Quy urged supporting the role of the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General on Myanmar and creating favorable conditions for the envoy's working trip to Myanmar, according to Vietnam Plus.

He urged Myanmar’s stakeholders to refrain from acts of violence, conduct dialogue and reconciliation according to the will and aspirations of the people, for peace and stability in the region.

He stressed the top priority to ensuring life, security, and safety of all, and unobstructed humanitarian aid to those in need of help, especially vulnerable groups in society. He called on parties concerned in Myanmar to refrain from violent acts, conduct dialogues and reconciliation according to the will and aspirations of the people, for the sake of peace and stability in the region.

The ambassador affirmed Myanmar is a member state of ASEAN and the regional bloc stays ready to help the country in a peaceful and constructive way through relevant mechanisms. He requested the international community to support ASEAN’s efforts and consult its stance regarding the issue at UNSC meetings, VOV cited.

Rapporteurs at the event expressed concern over the current situation in Myanmar and warned about the risks of economic, food, and health crises as well as a civil war. Many opinions called for refraining from violence and preventing tension escalation while asking to settle differences and disputes via dialogue and reconciliation that meet Myanmar people’s aspirations.

Arria-formula meeting is an informal meeting of the UN Security Council to discuss important and emerging issues with the participation of countries in and outside the UNSC as well as related organizations, Vietnamnet cited.
