Vietnam supports international legal process

Vietnam supports international legal processes including the International Court of Justice (ICJ). Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, head of the Vietnamese Permanent Mission to the UN was speaking on Wednesday at the plenary meeting on the report of the ICJ in the framework of the UN General Assembly's 74th session in New York.

He said that the court plays an important role in maintaining global peace and security through the mechanism of adjudicating lawsuits among countries and the consulting mechanism requested by the UN General Assembly, the UN Security Council and a number of agencies in line with the UN Charter. The principle of peaceful settlement of international disputes is one of the basic principles of international law, affirming that countries can choose a variety of methods to resolve disputes in accordance with the UN Charter, including the jurisdiction mechanism. The ambassador said that many countries tend to file lawsuits related to land and sea territorial disputes for settlement at the ICJ.
