Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy spokeswoman of the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry Pham Thu Hang has said protecting and promoting human rights is Vietnam's consistent policy.
She made the statement during the ministry's regular press conference in Hanoi on March 23 in response to the US Department of State's March 20 announcement of the annual Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2022, which mentioned that some Asian countries, including Vietnam, had “seriously and systematically violated human rights”.
Hang said Vietnam always considers human beings the centre and driving force of national renovation and development, always strives for the goal of improving people’s lives, ensuring their right to enjoyment and leaving no one behind. The fundamental rights and freedom of human beings are enshrined in the Constitution of Vietnam, protected and promoted by specific legal documents, and enforced in practice.
Vietnam regrets that the US Department of State’s 2022 Annual Human Rights Reports have made biased assessments based on inaccurate information about the actual situation in Vietnam, she said.
She added that Vietnam is always ready to talk about differences with the US straightforwardly and openly in a constructive spirit to enhance mutual understanding and contribute to the development of comprehensive partnership between Vietnam and the US./.
