Viet Nam, EU exchange views on human rights
The delegation, led by Deputy Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh, met with officials of the European Parliament's Subcommittee on Human Rights and the Delegation for Relations with the Countries of Southeast Asia and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and different agencies of the EC's Directorate General for External Relations.
At the working session, the Vietnamese officials explained Viet Nam's policies on promoting and ensuring human rights, which are manifested through increasingly improved legal system and mechanism for implementing citizens' human rights.
The delegates also presented the results Viet Nam has gained in promoting and ensuring human rights, particularly the freedom of speech, press, belief and religion, and assembly, as well as social, cultural and economic rights for every person.
The EU officials acknowledged the remarkable changes Viet Nam recorded in political, socioeconomic, and legal fields, and affirmed their supports to the country's renewal.
The two sides agreed that increasing dialogues and direct information exchange between EU and Vietnamese agencies will be useful for broadening mutual understanding and boosting the developing multilateral relations between Viet Nam and the EU.
