HÀ NỘI — The US State Department’s 2017 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices made some assessments that are not objective and do not correctly reflect the actual situation in Việt Nam, despite the report’s recognition of Việt Nam’s achievements in protecting human rights.

Spokeswoman of the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lê Thị Thu Hằng made the remarks yesterday in response to reporters’ questions about Việt Nam’s reaction to the reports. Hằng underlined Việt Nam’s consistent policy of ensuring and promoting human rights in conformity with international treaties on human rights to which Việt Nam is a party. 

The country’s efforts and achievements in this field have been recognised and highly evaluated by the international community, she added. 

“Like with other countries, Việt Nam is ready to discuss with the US within the existing frameworks on issues of mutual concern in a frank, open and mutually respectful spirit. Việt Nam considers this as an effective method to enhance mutual understanding and solve the issues in which the two sides still have differences,” the spokeswoman stressed. — VNS
