HA NOI (VNS) — A majority of the 1,550 Vietnamese people in Libya are living and working in areas unaffected by violence.

The Consular Department of the Foreign Ministry said this yesterday in response to questions concerning the safety of the Vietnamese people in Libya.

Earlier, the Foreign Ministry instructed Vietnamese representative agencies in Libya to monitor the situation closely and to work with the local authorities and companies which have hired Vietnamese labourers, thus being ready to support and protect Vietnamese citizens there.

The Vietnamese Embassy in Libya has been asked to inform the Vietnamese citizens living there about the developments in the country, warn them about avoiding areas affected by unrest and to stay in touch with the embassy for urgent assistance.

The embassy said last Saturday that ever since the situation became complicated in Libya, it has kept regular contact with all Vietnamese citizens there to understand their circumstances and to provide necessary support.

The embassy has set up two round-the-clock hotlines, +00218 926 903 041 and +00218 923 654 587, for Vietnamese citizens in Libya. The Consular Department of the Foreign Ministry has also opened a direct hotline number, 0084 918370497, to assist them in case of any emergency.

The Foreign Ministry will continue to work closely with the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, as well as the representative agencies of Viet Nam in Libya and other regional countries, to monitor the situation and take appropriate measures to ensure the safety of the Vietnamese people in Libya. — VNS
