HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam strongly protested Khmer Kampuchea Krom extremists for conducting an illegal demonstration and burning the Vietnamese national flag in Phnom Penh on Tuesday, said Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh yesterday.

Binh said their actions intentionally hurt the feelings of Vietnamese people, and were contrary to the fine tradition of neighbourly friendship between Viet Nam and Cambodia.

"We ask Cambodia to deal with the case in line with the law and take effective action avoid any repeats of the incident," Binh said. — VNS
