Vietnam’s Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh proposed five solutions for the world to overcome current challenges and promote peace, cooperation and prosperous development at a high-level meeting of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Friday.

The PM released his proposals while speaking before over 140 heads of state and government at the General Debate of the 78th Session of the UNGA conducted in New York, the U.S.

PM Chinh commented that the world is facing serious crises of trust, multilateral cooperation, principles and resources, and “only trust, sincerity and solidarity on a global scale, with the UN’s central role and the active participation of all countries, will help the international community jointly solve difficulties and overcome challenges successfully, promoting peace, cooperation and prosperity around the world.”

He called for the world’s leaders to join hands to carry out five global solutions to address such crises for the common interest of every nation. 

The first solution is reinforcement of sincerity, trust and responsibilities among all countries, in which the world’s powers play a very important role.

The second is a global solution to foster solidarity, international cooperation, and multilateralism, along with promoting the central role of the UN and supporting plans for the Sustainable Development Goals.

Thirdly is to adopt an all-people solution to promote the central role of people in all policy planning processes and actions of every country, ensuring no one is left behind.

Fourth, it is necessary to promote green economy, digital economy, circular economy, sharing economy and knowledge economy, along with boosting innovation and startups, removing trade and investment barriers, strengthening free trade agreements, and reforming international financial and monetary institutions.

The last is to open up, mobilize and effectively use resources while promoting self-reliance and self-strengthening, and bringing into play all potentials and strengths.

PM Chinh told the audience that Vietnam understands and appreciates the values of peace, cooperation and development as the country once experienced much pain, sacrifice, and loss from many wars as well as from the blockage and embargo during the last century.

With the spirit of ‘putting aside the past, overcoming differences, promoting similarities and looking towards the future,’ with perseverance and tireless efforts, Vietnam has turned its former enemies into friends, shifted confrontations into dialogues, and converted opponents into partners.

The country has been considered by international friends as a model of cooperation, remedies and post-war reconciliation for the common development and prosperity of all parties, Chinh stated. 

The Vietnamese leader also affirmed that Vietnam continues to maintain its foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, diversification and multilateralization, through which Vietnam is always a good friend, a reliable partner of all countries and an active and responsible member of the international community.

Vietnam will contribute more strongly and responsibly to the United Nations' priorities, including further participation in peacekeeping, and striving to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

Vietnam will both ensure domestic food security and contribute to ensuring global food security, the PM pledged.

Recalling the development history and current position of the Southeast Asian region, Chinh affirmed his commitment to working with countries inside and outside the region to maintain peace, stability, security, safety and freedom of navigation in the East Vietnam Sea on the basis of international law, including the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

He called for resolving disputes and differences by peaceful and cooperative means, including fair diplomatic and legal processes, avoiding unilateral actions. 

Upon completion of his 15-minute speech, many international friends congratulated Chinh, expressing their appreciation for Vietnam’s positive and responsible contributions to the world, as well as for the nation’s role and position in the region and on the international arena.
