The video conference was held on the topic of peace operations and human rights under the chair of Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, German Federal Minister of Defence.

Briefers included High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, Special Representative for South Sudan and head of the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) David Shearer and Senga Dismas Kitenge of Groupe Lotus, a human rights non-governmental organization based in Congo.

Speaking at the debate, Quy said that UN peacekeeping missions must ensure the accuracy and neutrality of information gathered during the supervision, reporting and analysis of the host countries’ enforcement of human rights.

All peacekeeping operations must adhere to such basic principles, take into account the local economic, social and cultural features, and particularly pay attention to protecting vulnerable groups in conflicts, he noted.

Peacekeepers should function as role models in complying with the UN principles and disciplines in human rights, and be provided with necessary knowledge and skills regarding this matter both before and during operations, the Vietnamese diplomat added.
