The following is the full version of his message.

Mr. President,

Today marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Charter.

This monumental document established the fundamental rules of modern international relations – those of sovereign equality, political independence and territorial integrity of states, and the prohibition of the threat or use of force. It set the framework for global collaboration at levels unseen in human history.

An unwavering commitment to the United Nations Charter was amply demonstrated at a Security Council Open Debate that I had the honor to chair earlier this year. The Council’s ensuing Presidential Statement firmly pronounced such commitment be the basis of a peaceful, prosperous and just world.

Unfortunately, peace is yet to be universal. Violence still reigns in many parts of the world. The pursuit of narrowly-defined national interests undermines interstate relations by allowing mistrusts to dictate. This is a dangerous prospect, especially when the international community is facing complex problems that threaten to deeply divide us.

Though many of us may still be in a time of physical distancing, we must stand together in our commitment to upholding the values and principles of the Charter.

Viet Nam is steadfast in its commitment to the Charter and will work to strengthen multilateral collaboration and frameworks, at both global and regional levels, particularly at the United Nations and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Mr. President,

For peace to prevail, wars must be outlawed. For peace to sustain, states must interact on the basis of trust, cooperation, equality and mutual respect. These were the aspirations and tasks set out by the founders of the United Nations. Now, it is incumbent upon us to fulfill the promise of peace for our future generations.

I thank you.
