Argument: Vietnam supports banning UN security council veto power
- "UN should end Security Council veto power". Vietnamese Embassy. April 12, 2005 - NEW YORK — Vietnamese representative to the United Nations, Nguyen Duy Chien, has called for limiting and eventually abolishing the veto power of the Security Council of United Nations as part of reforming the organisation.
- At the 59th plenary session of the General Assembly, which discussed UN Secretary General’s report on the reform process in the UN, last Friday, Chien, Deputy Permanent Representative of Viet Nam, reaffirmed Viet Nam’s continued support for the institutional reform process in the United Nations, including reforms to the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
- 'The real reforms in the Security Council will be completed only when membership to the Council is increased and when working methods are improved. The use of the veto should be limited and eventually eliminated,' he said."
