Lieutenant Colonel Luong Truong Vinh previously served in South Sudan and the Central African Republic as part of a UN peacekeeping mission. Both were valuable experiences for him in taking on the vacancy at the UN. 

UN peacekeeping mission headquarters is in New York. More than 200 outstanding police officers from around the world hope to pass difficult tests. 

The number of Vietnamese officers involved in UN peacekeeping missions remains modest but their contribution has been constantly praised by the UN and Vietnam’s international friends./.
