Vietnam Supports UN Resolution To Promote Women's Role
Addressing UN Security Council high-level meeting to mark the 10th anniversary of Resolution 1325 here on Tuesday, Ambassador Bui The Giang noted the UNSC's increased commitment to women's role in peace and security.
He appreciated a greater awareness at both national and international levels that resulted in an unprecedented number of activities carried out in highly diverse forms and in a wide range of areas by all stakeholders to promote women's role.
"Most visible at the international level is the better coordinated work within the UN system in mainstreaming gender in peace and security, and in addressing issues which may impact women's participation in peace processes," he stressed.
The ambassador also commended the adoption of the three-year Joint Strategy on Gender and Mediation initiated by the UN Department of Political Affairs (DPA) and the UN Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and the proposed seven-point Action Plan which contains actions needed to enhance women's participation in peace-building.
He expressed hope that the newly-established UN WOMEN will take the lead in the agenda "Women and Peace and Security".
