Vietnam hails UN Mission in East Timor
New York (VNA) – Vietnam applauds the efforts of the United Nations Integrated Mission in East Timor (UNMIT) to restore and maintain security in the newest independent Southeast Asian nation.
Deputy Permanent Representative of Vietnam to the UN Ambassador Bui The Giang made the statement at a debate of the Security Council on the report of the UN Mission visit to East Timor from March 17-27 that provided training to national police.
UNMIT should continue its close coordination with the East Timorese government and national police to raise the efficiency of its assistance activities, said Ambassador Giang.
The Vietnamese representative voiced his support to the UN’s continued assistance to East Timor in poverty reduction, which is considered a root cause of instability and insecurity.
Ambassador Giang said the visit by the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) to East Timor was good start to the implementation of UN Secretary General’s Initiative and Security Council’s Resolution 1802 to help East Timor improve its national police.
“Vietnam supports proactive efforts by the Government of East Timor to draft a National Police Policy which could serve a basis to further streamline and improve the National Police of East Timor,” the Vietnamese diplomat said.
