The announcement ceremony was held by the Ministry of Defence, under the chair of Deputy Defence Minister Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Chi Vinh, in Hanoi.

Deputy Minister of Defence Nguyen Chi Vinh asked the seven officers to seriously obey the foreign policies of the Party, State, and Army of Vietnam, as well as the disciplines of the UN missions and the laws of the host countries.

Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Chi Vinh expressed his hope that the seven officers would become a bridge between Vietnam and the UN peacekeeping missions in service of dealing with issues in the field, as Vietnam's first level-2 field hospital is going to join the UN peacekeeping force in South Sudan in late June.
