Vietnam, together with 40 countries worldwide, has aligned itself to the voluntary global pledge “For every child, every right” to ensure no one is left behind, and to support every child to reach their full potential, said Ambassador Dang Dinh Quy, head of Vietnam’s permanent mission to the UN on September 25.

Attending the UN General Assembly’s celebration for global actions on the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, Quy stressed the significance of the event, saying it offered an opportunity for all nations to enhance efforts to protect the rights of children.

Although positive results have been achieved in the past two decades, more efforts are needed to handle challenges like conflicts, climate change, pollution, poverty, natural disasters and diseases to bring a bright future to children, he stressed.

The Vietnamese diplomat also noted the essential role of education for each child, and said Vietnam has made concerted efforts to ensure children have the chance to study, even during wartime.

To that end, the Vietnamese Government supports the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF)’s safe school environment programme, aiming to raise a voice to single out children’s education rights in all cases, he added.

Highlighting achievements in the work to protect children’s rights in the past 30 years, President of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly Tijjani Muhammad-Bande said that under-five mortality has fallen more than 50% and the number of malnourished children has declined by nearly half since 1990.

Muhammad-Bande said he would prioritise improving education quality for children in his term.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres spoke highly of global actions to realise the convention. As there are millions of children suffering from climate change, poverty, diseases and violence, he called on countries worldwide to reaffirm the implementation of the convention, and work to ensure all children live in a safe environment, live healthily, and can achieve their dreams.

UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore urged countries to honour their commitments, stressing the world needs to listen to children, support and take actions for them.

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."
