HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam acknowledges several adjustments in the US Department of State’s 2015 report on international religious freedom, however it still contains several subjective assessments and cites incorrect information about Việt Nam, stated Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lê Hải Bình.

Bình made the statement yesterday in reply to reporters’ queries on Việt Nam’s response to the August 10 report.

He affirmed that the Vietnamese State’s consistent policy is to respect and ensure citizens’ rights to freedom of belief and religion, which is stipulated in the country’s Constitution and law.

“Vietnamese law strictly forbids any discrimination against citizens for religious and belief reasons,” said Bình.

"Việt Nam is implementing numerous policies to ensure its people fully enjoy the rights to freedom of belief and religion," he added. — VNS
