VGP – Viet Nam has consistently pursued the policy of ensuring and promoting human rights in line with international treaties on human rights to which the country is a signatory.

The statement was made by Spokeswoman of the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang on May 4 in reply to reporters’ question about Viet Nam’s reaction to the 2017 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices of the U.S. Department of State.

Despite recognition of Viet Nam’s achievements in protecting human rights, the reports still made some assessments that are not objective and do not reflect correctly the actual situation in the country.

The nation’s efforts and achievements in this field have been recognized and highly evaluated by the international community, she added.

“Like with other countries, Viet Nam is willing to discuss with the U.S. within the existing frameworks on issues of mutual concern in the frank, open and mutual respect spirit,” stressed the Spokeswoman, adding that the country considers this as an effective method to strengthen mutual understanding and address the issues in which both sides have differences./.
