The biggest issue regarding this topic is the civil war happening in central Africa. There have been efforts to help calm the war in Africa such as the United Nations peacekeeping efforts that have been present in CAR since 2014. Despite the fact that CAR has been one of the most dangerous countries in the world for foreign aid workers since 2017, this event has renewed international attention and the need for intervention as it highlights the use of guerrilla tactics putting civilians in even more danger. the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the CAR, or MINUSCA. As of 2021, there is almost 16,000 MINUSCA personnel present throughout the country. The European Union has also sent troops to the region and other African nations have utilized their own peacekeeping forces in attempts to control violent outbreaks and various transitions of power in the government.
Vietnam does not have any input in the situation in central Africa. Vietnam does not want a conflict to happen and would like to solve the problem but has very few resources that they would be willing to give to help as they do not have many ties to central Africa. Vietnam would be interested in helping the removal of landmines in central Africa. The cost of a landmine is between $3 and $75 while the cost of removing it is between $300 and $1000. The use of the M1150 by the United States has shown great use in the middle east removing and destroying mines.
Vietnam would poteshaly be interested in resolving or helping fix some of the issues in central Africa. There are some countries that we would look more favorably upon working with and resolving these issues. Vietnam would be open to working with Russia, Cuba, India, and Laos. Vietnam would also be interested in working with japan south Korea the United States of America as well as China
