Paris (VNA) – A Vietnamese delegation led by Deputy
Foreign Minister Le Hoai Trung attended the second
Paris Peace Forum that opened on November 12 under the chair of French
President Emmanuel Macron.
The event attracted 30 heads of State, leaders of
countries and major international organisations, experts and businesspeople.
Deputy FM Trung attended and delivered a speech at a
session on the 70th anniversary of Geneva Conventions.
Speaking at the event, President Macron said extreme
nationalism, war and non-cooperation will destroy all that humans have built
over the past years.
Europe is the place where the price of
non-cooperation is best known, he said.
In order to cope with challenges amid changing world
order and difficulties in multilateralism, the forum called on entities to
make commitments and promote specific solutions to global governance.
The event is part of efforts initiated by Macron to
reaffirm the importance of multilateralism and facilitate international
cooperation and collective actions for a peaceful world.
Participants will spend two days discussing specific
solutions and creating new rules, standards and practices.
The forum has received over 700 projects and
initiatives from 115 countries with the topics of peace and security,
environment, development, new technology, inclusive economic growth, culture
Of them, 120 projects have been chosen to be
presented at the event through which founders will have a chance to discuss
with leaders and potential partners.
The best 10 projects will receive support within one
year. Their results will be announced at the next forum./.
