At an event in New York to mark the 70th anniversary of the Geneva Conventions held on the sidelines of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly, Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, head of Vietnam’s permanent mission to the UN, also urged nations to translate their political commitments into specific actions, thus boosting capacity of the multilateral system in tackling global issues, ensuring peace and security, and promoting sustainable development.

Quy took the occasion to affirmed Vietnam’s commitment to multilateralism and core humanity values of the International Humanitarian Law.

The event, themed “investing in humanity through multilateralism”, was co-organised by China, South Africa and Switzerland, and the International Committee of the Red Cross. It gathered representatives of more than 25 countries.

Participants highlighted the Geneva Conventions as the key document of the International Humanitarian Law, saying it is universal and reflects the UN’s core humanity values.

They said global issues, particularly humanitarian ones, can only be addressed via multilateralism, which is not an option but a top requirement to promote humanity.
