Hanoi officials pay tribute to Lenin on his birthday

A delegation from the Party Committee, People’s Council, People’s Committee and Fatherland Front Committee of Hanoi on April 22 paid a floral tribute to Vladimir Ilyich Lenin at his statue on Dien Bien Phu Street, to mark his 151st birthday.

The delegation was led by Politburo member and Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Dinh Tien Dung. Members of the Party Central Committee: Permanent Deputy Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Thi Tuyen, and Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Chu Ngoc Anh also joined the delegation.

The officials recalled Lenin’s great contributions to the global revolutionary cause and expressed their determination to continue both his ideology and revolutionary path, as well as spersevering with Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh thought to build a beautiful, wealthy and civilised Hanoi, contributing to the proletarian revolutionary cause, according to NDO.

PM’s First Foreign Trip Aims to Cement Solidarity With ASEAN

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh’s attendance at the upcoming ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting in Jakarta aims to affirm Viet Nam’s priority to consolidate solidarity and mutual support with ASEAN member States, thus contributing to elevating the bloc’s centrality and position in settling emerging challenges.

As reported by VGP, at the invitation of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah – the current ASEAN Chair, PM Pham will lead a high-ranking Vietnamese delegation to the ASEAN Leaders’ Meeting which will be held digitally at the ASEAN Secretariat headquarters in Jakarta, Indonesia from April 23-24.

This is Pham’s first foreign trip since he took office as the Vietnamese Prime Minister since April 5, 2021.

His participation at the meeting also indicates Viet Nam’s commitments to make proactive contributions to address shared issues face by the region and the world, particularly as the country is current UNSC Chair in April.

Building on last year’s progresses, Viet Nam is working with ASEAN member States to further promote the region’s priorities.

Based on the Ha Noi Declaration on the ASEAN Community Vision 2025 adopted at the 37th ASEAN Summit in November 2020, the member countries have basically agreed on the draft Terms of Reference (TOR) of the senior task force building a post-2025 vision for ASEAN Community and a roadmap for the work.

As Chair of the Initiative for ASEAN Integration (IAI) Task Force, Viet Nam sent to other member countries a draft organization procedure of an ASEAN dialogue on narrowing development gaps between sub-regions for comprehensive recovery and sustainable development. Its proposal has been welcomed by ASEAN members.

Vietnam appreciative of Colombia’s reintegration commitment

Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, permanent representative of Vietnam to the United Nations (UN), has acknowledged positive developments made by Colombia in the fields of politics, economics, and social affairs, especially in the context of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Upon addressing the UN Security Council (UNSC) debate on April 21 regarding the situation in Colombia, the Vietnamese Ambassador noted appreciation for commitments made by the Colombian Government in terms of implementing the reintegration process, including the protection of veterans.

He therefore suggested that all stakeholders continue to engage in a constructive dialogue which can fully address the challenges and differences within the peace process, especially through the mechanisms that have been established in line with the peace agreement.

The local diplomat also acknowledged the efforts made by political parties in preparing for elections which will take place in 2022. Vietnam therefore desires the Colombian Government and related parties to create favourable conditions for election organisations and participation, while calling upon the UN and the wider international community to support the Colombian Government in promoting peace, security, and development, he added.

Carlos Ruiz Massieu, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Colombia and Head of the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia, applauded political, security and economic progresses in the South American country since the Peace Agreement was signed.

He, however, showed his concerns over increasing attacks and violence targeting veterans and socialists.

Carlos Ruiz Massieu called on the Colombian Government to continue promoting the political process and protecting the vulnerable groups, especially women and children, in conflict-affected areas.

Participants reaffirmed their support for activities of the UN Verification Mission in Colombia and the country’s government during the peace and national reconciliation process, according to VOV.

Second group of Vietnam’s level-2 field hospital No. 3 departs for South Sudan

The second and last group of staff of Vietnam’s Level-2 Field Hospital No. 3 has departed for the United Nations’ peacekeeping mission in South Sudan from Ho Chi Minh City on April 21.

A ceremony was held at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport to see off the staff before they boarded the Royal Australian Air Force’s Boeing C-17 Globemaster III to fly to the war-ravaged South Sudan.

The first batch departed for the African country from Ho Chi Minh City, also on the Boeing C-17 aircraft provided by Australia, last month. They completed mandatory quarantine and are in the UN base in Bentiu since April 17 to replace the Level-2 Field Hospital No. 2.
