This marked the first activity of the EWG on peacekeeping operations in the fourth cycle, thereby showing that the country has proactively fulfilled its dual role as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council and co-chair of the event alongside Japan. This is in addition to affirming the nation’s role, prestige, position, and contributions to multilateral co-operation mechanisms in the field throughout the region.

It also provides a platform in which to enhance the sharing of expertise and experience between various ASEAN member states and the UN in an effort to boost women’s participation in peacekeeping operations.

The ADMM is primarily focusing on seven practical areas of co-operation, with UN peacekeeping operations being one of the major contents. Amid the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic which has had a long-term political and economic toll, the occasion reflects both Vietnamese and Japanese efforts to maintain the EWG’s activities, according to VOV.
