Vu made his statement while attending an online ministerial-level open debate of the UN Security Council on the linkages between terrorism and transnational organized crime held on August 6.

At the debate, Vu shared the common concern of the impact of terrorism and organized crime on peace, security, and sustainable development of UN member countries, given the complex developments of COVID-19.

The diplomat noted the member countries hold the top responsibility in the fight against these forces, adding that their responses should respect the UN Charter, international law, and involved nations’ independence and national sovereignty while following the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and other related resolutions by the UN General Assembly and Security Council.

He said in such a process, the UN can play an active role in building an overall approach to tackle the root causes of the problem like poverty, inequality, and unemployment.

Vu informed participants that Vietnam has made efforts in completing its legal, economic, and financial systems to mitigate the risk of terrorism financing, prevent international organized crime, and carry out its missions in line with international standards.

ASEAN, meanwhile, always considers the terrorism fight a top priority in intra-bloc collaboration, the diplomat stated.
