New York (VNA) - Ambassador Pham Hai Anh, Chargé d’Affaires a.i. of Vietnam to the United Nations, has called on parties concerned in Sudan to continue to exercise restraint to avoid escalating tensions.

The ambassador urged the parties to promote dialogue and reconciliation, in accordance with the 2019 Constitutional Declaration during a meeting of the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) regarding activities of the 1591 Committee concerning Sudan and the UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS) held in New York on December 10.

He welcomed recent efforts to foster stability in Sudan, including the November 21 political agreement.

He called on relevant authorities to protect civilians, promote dialogues and build trust between communities in Darfur.

He expressed his hope that the international community will increase humanitarian aid and support the settlement of economic challenges in Sudan, while underlining the importance of ensuring security and safety for UN and UNITAMS staff./.
