Viet Nam stands by Venezuelan gov't

Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh

HA NOI (VNS)— Viet Nam believes Venezuela will continue to develop stably, with its social safety and Constitution intact, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh said yesterday.

This will foster regional peace, co-operation and development, he said, responding to queries from the media regarding the current situation in Venezuela.

Binh pointed out that Venezuela is a traditional ally and important partner of Viet Nam in Latin America.

Viet Nam stands in solidarity with the government and the people of Venezuela, he said.
