Hanoi (VNA) - A seminar on women conducting diplomatic activities for peace took place in Hanoi on December 15, as part of activities to contribute to Vietnam’s diplomacy in its role as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the 2020-2021 tenure.

The event attracted female Vietnamese ambassadors and Lieutenant Sa Minh Ngoc, one of the first female officers from the Vietnam People’s Army to join the UN peacekeeping mission in South Sudan.

Ambassador Luan Thuy Duong told the gathering on Vietnamese women’s important contributions to diplomatic activities for peace. She also highlighted their tireless dedication to peace, development, and fostering the future of later generations.

The seminar joins nine others on women and their contributions in different fields taking place throughout December and early January.

A painting exhibition was also held on the occasion, with nearly 60 works featuring Vietnamese women and their efforts in national development./.
