Edmond Mulet, Assistant Secretary-General of Peacekeeping Operations at the United Nations (UN), began a three-day visit to Vietnam on February 25 in order to help the country prepare to join the UN peacekeeping force by 2014.
Senior Lieutenant General Nguyen Chi Vinh, Vietnam's Deputy Minister of National Defense, said at his meeting with Mulet on February 25 that the UN Department for Peacekeeping Operations has already given the Vietnam's People's Army support in its preparations to join in the UN's peacekeeping force, news website VietNamNet has reported.
Mulet said that his department will work more closely with the Vietnamese army, as well as create favorable conditions that will allow the Vietnamese side to send officers to visit a UN peacekeeping mission.
During his stay in Vietnam, Mullet is scheduled to work with relevant ministries and agencies to help them effectively prepare for their eventual participation in future UN peacekeeping campaigns.
