Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed up 0.89 percent at 472.7 on Friday after falling for three straight days as investors were less concerned over actions against Syria and foreigners started buying Vietnamese stocks, traders said.
Britain's parliament rejected British participation in any military action against Syria, while China said there should be no rush to force U.N. Security Council action against Syria.
The index was lifted mostly by finance stocks. Vietcombank jumped 6 percent to 24,700 dong as investors bought the stock at a bargain price. The stock fell 5.3 percent on Thursday to the lowest in nearly nine months.
BaoViet Holdings gained 5.6 percent and Eximbank increased 4.3 percent. Real estate firms also followed the gain, with VinGroup rising 1.6 percent and HAGL Co gaining 1 percent.
The index wouldn't lose further next week as the local investors' sentiment gets better and the trading volume would rise," trader Phan Dung Khanh at Maybank Kim Eng Securities said.

Indonesian shares rose for a third straight session on Friday after the country's central bank took steps to shore up the rupiah, while most other Southeast Asian stocks rebounded in a weak month, partly hit by expectations of a scaling back in U.S. monetary stimulus.
Jakarta's Composite Index finished up 2.2 percent, further trimming losses made early in the week that had driven the benchmark into a bear market territory.
It recorded a loss of 9 percent for the month, the worst since the Lehman Brothers crisis in late 2008 and making it one of Asia's underperformers this year.
The Thai SET index pared gains to close 0.1 percent up. It lost 9.2 percent in August, the biggest since September 2011, and has fallen around 21 percent from a high in May, entering the bear market territory.
Data showed the country's current account deficit in July slightly increased with a smaller trade surplus, and foreign exchange reserves dropped recently.
Philippine shares were also underperformers in August, losing 8.5 percent, their worst since October 2008.
Singapore reported a loss of 6 percent for the month, the biggest since May 2012. Malaysia ended the month down 2.5 percent, the worst since January, and Vietnam marked a monthly loss of 3.9 percent, reversing a gain in July.
