Indian media: Vietnam’s election could reshuffle dynamics of UNSC

IANS, an Indian news agency, reported that Vietnam has been elected unopposed to the Security Council on behalf of the Asian countries in an election that could reshuffle the dynamics of the UN's highest body that is already paralyzed on many important issues like Syria, Yemen and Venezuela.

IANS website on Saturday quoted Vietnam's Permanent Representative at the UN Dang Dinh Quy as saying Vietnam's election represented the recognition of the principles of independence and cooperation that guide its foreign policy. Mr. Quy said Vietnam would work to meet not only the traditional challenges, but also the emerging non-traditional challenges to international security. As a nation that has emerged from decades of war, Vietnam would contribute to the Council from its experience of rebuilding, and specifically dealing with landmines, which are a deadly problem in many areas.
