Remarks by High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini at the signing ceremony of the EU-Viet Nam Framework Participation Agreement

Hôm nay, Đại diện Cấp cao của Liên minh châu Âu về Chính sách Đối ngoại và An ninh/Phó Chủ tịch Ủy ban châu Âu, Bà Federica Mogherini, và Bộ trưởng Quốc phòng Việt Nam, Đại tướng Ngô Xuân Lịch, đã ký một Hiệp định nhằm thiết lập một khuôn khổ cho sự tham gia của Việt Nam trong các hoạt động quản lý khủng hoảng của Liên minh châu Âu.


Today, the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini, and the Minister of National Defence of Viet Nam, General NGO Xuan Lich, signed an Agreement establishing a framework for the participation of Viet Nam in European Union crisis management operations.


The European Union welcomes the agreement reached by the President of Ecuador, Lenín Moreno, and representatives of the indigenous groups, supported by the United Nations and the Episcopal conference, which opened the way to the restoration of peace and public order in the country.

With European prosperity and Asian peace and security closely connected, the European Union has decided to strengthen its security cooperation in and with Asia. This is also in line with the steps taken by the EU in the past years to strengthen its role as a global security provider: Europe and Asia share a fundamental interest in upholding the rules-based international system, as well as the view that the challenges the world faces today go beyond national borders and cannot be tackled alone. The EU-Asia security partnership is therefore both desirable and necessary.
