VN asks China to coordinate in search for missing vessel


QĐND – Friday, October 15, 2010, 21:7 (GMT+7)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) on October 14 sent a diplomatic note to the Chinese Embassy, once again requesting coordination in search for Boat QNg 66478TS and its nine-member crew as well as provision of any information.


The request was announced by MoFA Spokesperson Nguyen Phuong Nga at the ministry’s regular press briefing in Hanoi on the same day.


According to the spokesperson, on September 11, 2010, the Chinese captured Boat QNg-66478TS and nine Vietnamese fishermen onboard within the territorial waters of Vietnam ’s Hoang Sa (Paracels) archipelago.


Immediately after receiving the news, competent Vietnamese agencies investigated the case and found that the fishermen were legally fishing offshore Hoang Sa archipelago when they were seized. The boat was only carrying nomal  fishing equipment such as nets and floodlights.


MoFA had contacted its Chinese partners at different levels in Hanoi and Beijing to seek solutions to the issue.


Earlier, the ministry sent a diplomatic note to the Chinese Embassy saying that China ’s seizure of the Vietnamese vessel and its fishermen while they were legally fishing in the Vietnamese territorial waters seriously violated Vietnam ’s sovereignty and sovereign rights. The ministry also demanded the Chinese side immediately and unconditionally release the fishing vessel and fishermen.


On October 9, China decided to release Boat QNg 66478TS. The boat and its nine fishermen, as reported by the Chinese side, departed at 1.00 pm on October 11.


However, until the morning of October 13, neither the boat nor the fishermen returned home . The MoFA representatives met Chinese Embassy staff in Vietnam , asking the Chinese side to join hands with Vietnamese competent agencies to seek the boat and the fishermen.


In the evening of October 13, the Chinese Embassy said that when releasing the Vietnamese boat and fishermen, the Chinese had provided them with sufficient fuel and other necessities for their return journey. Boat QNg 66478TS left port at 1.00 pm on October 11 and then, it came back to ask for more fuel and the Chinese side agreed.


The Chinese agencies also advised the Vietnamese fishermen to stay for several days because of a tropical depression in the East Sea . However, the fishermen decided to depart and committed in writing that they would be fully responsible for their decision. The boat and fishermen set off in the evening of October 11.


The Chinese Embassy said that it would ask competent Chinese agencies to coordinate in search for the boat and fishermen.

PM asks US to do more for AO victims


QĐND – Wednesday, April 07, 2010, 21:25 (GMT+7)

Vietnam calls for the US to take responsibility for addressing the after-effects of the war it waged in Vietnam, including assisting the Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange.


Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung delivered the call to Paul Cox, member of the Vietnamese Agent Orange Relief and Responsibility Campaign (VAORRC) Board, and a delegation of US war veterans during their meeting in Hanoi on April 6.


While reiterating the country’s wish to promote friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation with the US, PM Dung stated that the American war left Vietnam and its people with severe consequences that are still felt even today.


More than two million Vietnamese were killed in the war, tens of millions of others were wounded and more than 300,000 people are still recorded as missing, he recounted.


As many as two million Vietnamese people have been exposed to Agent Orange and other toxic chemicals sprayed on Vietnam by US troops.


Even today, cases of injury and death from unexploded landmines left over from the war are reported every week, the PM told his guests.


He called the US court’s rejection of petitions against US chemical companies lodged by the Vietnamese AO victims an injustice, upsetting the Vietnamese people.


PM Dung was hopeful that the delegation of US war veterans and the VAORRC would continue supporting the lawsuit of the Vietnamese AO victims.


He also said he hoped they would continue to help the US Government and the American people fully understand the heavy consequences of the war in Vietnam in the interests of coordinating on assistance in treating AO victims and helping them cope with the difficulties they face.


Paul Cox told his host that during the working trip, all members of the delegation were touched by the agony caused by the terrible effects of AO that Vietnamese victims and their families are suffering.


Following this visit, the US delegation will prepare a bill aiming to support Vietnamese AO victims, Cox said, pledging that he will continue to do his utmost to pursue the cause of gaining justice for these victims.

In Uncategorized on April 7, 2010 at 11:47 am

Le Hong Phong High School in Ho Chi Minh City.Ho Chi Minh City’s Le Hong Phong high school for the gifted asked the Government April 6 to allocate more budget funds for the school based on the total number of classes instead of the total number of students.

According to school Principal Vo Anh Dung, there are 54 classes with more than 1,700 students in the school.


However, the qualifications of teachers at the school are not equivalent.

US asks China to mull ‘implications’ of Google move

In Uncategorized on March 24, 2010 at 3:51 pm

WASHINGTON, March 23, 2010 (AFP) – The United States said Tuesday that China must consider the “implications” of Google’s decision to effectively shut down its Chinese search engine because it was too hard to do business there.


China, meanwhile, angrily attacked Google for stopping censorship of its Chinese-language search engine but said there should be no broader fallout in Sino-US ties provided there was no political meddling in the United States.

On Wall Street, Google shares shed 1.52 percent on Tuesday to close at 549.00 dollars while Google rival and Chinese search market leader Baidu saw its share price gain 2.62 percent to close at 594.88 dollars.


State Department spokesman Philip Crowley said the United States respects but was “not party” to Google’s decision to redirect Web search queries from mainland China to an uncensored site in Hong Kong.


In Beijing, officials reserved their ire for Google, which lifted censorship of its Chinese search engine, Google.cn, in response to cyberattacks last year the company said targeted Google code and the email accounts of Chinese rights activists.


“I don’t see it influencing Sino-US relations unless some people want to politicize it,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang said, describing the Google situation as “mainly an individual commercial case.”


“If you link this to China-US relations or politicize it, or even link it to China’s international image, this is mere overkill,” Qin said. “China’s market is fully open.”


Google said it was “business as usual” at its China headquarters, as a fierce debate erupted online between Chinese defenders of free speech and nationalist-minded net users denouncing foreign interference.


Google spokeswoman Marsha Wang said she had no information about layoffs or a possible transfer of staff to the US giant’s Hong Kong offices, saying only that “adjustments” could be made “according to business demand.”


Despite Google’s promise of uncensored results, searches of politically sensitive key words generated the browser message “cannot display the webpage” — suggesting China’s “Great Firewall” of Internet control remained erect.


Google’s top lawyer David Drummond said the firm was “well aware that (China) could at any time block access to our services.”


Despite Monday’s decision, Drummond said Google plans to maintain its sales and research and development teams in China, which has the world’s largest online population at 384 million.


Google launched Google.cn in January 2006 after agreeing to censor websites for content banned under Chinese law. Google.cn is the second-largest search engine in China after Baidu.


A Chinese official in charge of the Internet bureau of the State Council Information Office said that by ending censorship, Google had “violated its written promise” to block controversial search results.


The world’s search leader was “totally wrong” to stop censoring its Chinese-language search engine and to blame Beijing for the alleged hacker attacks, the official said.
