VTV.vn - Defence diplomacy has contributed to deepening relations between Vietnam and other countries, while promoting Vietnam’s role and position in the international arena, heard an online conference in Hanoi on January 7.

The conference was held by the Ministry of National Defence to review Vietnam’s international integration and defence diplomacy in 2021.

Deputy Minister of National Defence Sen. Lt. Gen. Hoang Xuan Chien stressed the need to advance multilateral defence diplomacy, saying Vietnam should play a more active role in consolidating cooperation mechanisms within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and those led by the ten-member bloc.

The officer also suggested enhancing Vietnam’s engagement in UN peace-keeping operations, targeting more spheres and areas.

Agencies need to step up the communication work to raise public awareness of guidelines and viewpoints of the Party and the State regarding international integration and defence diplomacy, the friendship between Vietnam and other countries, and national defence and security, he said.
