H. Res. 20 resolution does not reflect reality in Vietnam

QĐND – Sunday, December 19, 2010, 22:38 (GMT+7)

The Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on December 18 that the H.Res. 20 resolution adopted by the US House of Representatives on December 17 is not objective and does not reflect current realities in Vietnam.

Ms Nga answered reporters’ questions on Vietnam’s response to the House of Representatives’ H.Res.20, which calls for listing Vietnam as a ‘country of particular concern’ with respect to religious freedom.

Mr Nga stated that Vietnam is a multi-religious nation, where 80 percent of the population engage in some form of religious practices, and 22.3 million are followers of different religions. She stressed that world major religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam peacefully coexist and develop in the country.

The Vietnamese spokeswoman reiterated the Vietnamese Party and State’s consistent policy to respect and create the best conditions for ensuring freedom of religion and belief, which are enshrined in the Constitution and Vietnam’s legal documents.

Ms Nga confirmed that Vietnam is willing to engage in a dialogue with other parties, including the US, to bridge any discrepancies.
