She expressed her hope that Vietnam will make more contributions to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and sustainable development goals in Vietnam and the region, and bring into play its ASEAN Chairmanship to promote cooperation between the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

For her part, Mai said the Vietnamese Government appreciates Bachalet’s role and contributions to human rights promotion and protection in the world.

She briefed the UN official on Vietnam’s priorities, policies and outstanding achievements in the sphere of human rights, and stressed the significance of multilateral cooperation in this regard.

Human rights promotion and protection are major issues in Vietnam’s implementation of its 2013 Constitution and socio-economic development policy, the ambassador added.

The ambassador pledged to make all-out efforts, together with the Vietnamese mission in Geneva and competent Vietnamese agencies, to make more contributions at the UNHRC, join hands with the OHCHR and push ahead with cooperation between the ASEAN and the OHCHR.

Mai also called for more collaboration and support from the UN High Commissioner and the OHCHR to Vietnam.
