Since the war broke out, this was the first time the embassy had met in person with representatives of the Vietnamese community in Israel although online meetings were held regularly, said Vietnamese Ambassador to Israel Ly Duc Trung, stressing that the embassy always pays attention to citizen protection.
About 500 Vietnamese expatriates and nearly 200 students, along with a number of temporary workers are now in Israel, who remain safe as they all live far from conflict zones.
Over the past time, the embassy has coordinated with the Liaison Board of the Vietnamese Association in Israel to take measures to ensure safety and security for the Vietnamese community.
Earlier, Trung said as foreign airlines have stopped operating in Israel, one of the plans being prepared by the embassy is to help Vietnamese people evacuate by road across the Jordan border to a safe area, Nhan dan (People) reported.
According to the diplomat, ensuring uninterrupted information connection is one of the priority tasks for the embassy since the first days of the war.
Hong Shuranys said since the outbreak of the conflict, the association has set up groups on social networks to inform about the situation, encourage and support each other, and continuously maintain contact with the embassy to get updated on Vietnam’s guidelines and policies related to citizen protection.
On November 9, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) Pham Thu Hang said the ministry has continued to urge Vietnamese citizens in Israel to leave the country in the face of recent complex developments in the Middle East.
So far, 13 Vietnamese nationals have safely returned to the homeland, she noted.
Under the MoFA’s directions, the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel has proactively built and carried out citizen protection plans, kept contact with, increased communications and recommendations, and assisted citizens in leaving Israel for safer places.
Hang added that in case of emergency, they should contact the Vietnamese Embassy in Israel via its citizen protection hotline (+972 50 818 6116, +972 52 727 4248 or +972 50 994 0889), and the MoFA’s Consular Department via its citizen protection switchboard (+84 981 84 84 84, +84 965 41 11 18) or email (email@example.com).
