This is Norway’s fourth Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. In this new plan, we focus, among other things, on women’s participation and rights both in initial, informal peace talks and in formal peace negotiations. Norway will have a more systematic focus on women, peace and security in our efforts to support the implementation of peace agreements, strengthen the gender perspective in international operations and missions, and increase our efforts for women and girls in our humanitarian work.
Vietnam is more engaged in the UN Peace Keeping Operations. In 2018, Vietnam sent the first field hospital to South Sudan. Norway and Vietnam will have a lot to share and learn from each other in this issue.
