HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam has requested the Government of the Republic of Korea (RoK) not to take any action and make any statement hurting the Vietnamese people’s  sentiment and undermining friendly and cooperative relations between the two countries.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Lê Thị Thu Hằng made the statement yesterday in response to reporters’ queries on Việt Nam’s views of a speech by RoK President Moon Jae-in on June 6 honouring Korean “contributors” on battlefields in foreign countries, including Việt Nam.

“Regarding this issue, on June 9, 2017, a representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs seriously talked with a representative of the Republic of the Korean Embassy in Việt Nam,” Hằng said. “Việt Nam wants to develop friendly relations with all nations, including the Republic of Korea. Leaders of the two countries reached common perceptions in putting the past aside and looking towards the future,” she said.

Korean soldiers participated on the American side during the Việt Nam war in the late 1960s and early 1970s. — VNS
