HANOI (VNS) — Nineteen Vietnamese guest workers in Yemen travelled safely to Oman on Wednesday, foreign ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh said at the ministry's regular press conference yesterday.
Violence has been escalating in Yemen over the past few weeks.
Binh said on being informed about the situation of the 19 Vietnamese citizens, the Vietnamese embassies in Saudi Arabia and Yemen immediately contacted the representatives of these workers and coordinated with agencies in Yemen, the embassies of the ASEAN nations and other countries to ensure their safety.
Most of the workers are offshore fishermen under contract with a Korean company. — VNS
