Vietnam Rejects Some Int’l Organizations’ Prejudices on Human Rights Situation
Vietnam's consistent policy is to protect and promote the basic rights of the people, Spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang said during the ministry's regular press conference on September 22.
Hang made the statement in reply to reporters' queries on Vietnam's reaction to some international human rights organizations' controversial opinions about Vietnam's candidacy for the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) as they believe that the country's achievements in this field are poor and lack cooperation with the UNHRC.
“We completely reject the untruthful, unobjective contents with bad prejudices that some foreign organizations have raised about the situation in Vietnam,” she stressed.

Vietnam’s consistent policy of protecting and promoting human rights has been specified in the 2013 Constitution and many other legal documents, the spokesperson stated, adding that the country's efforts and achievements in the work have been recognized and appreciated by the international community.
Most recently, in March 2022, Vietnam published a voluntary midterm report on the implementation of Universal Periodic Review (UPR) third cycle recommendations, which demonstrates the responsibility of a member state, as well as the transparency and seriousness of Vietnam towards the UPR mechanism in particular and in the implementation of international commitments on human rights in general.
“Vietnam also actively shows the spirit of cooperation with the special procedures of the UN Human Rights Council, regularly maintains a bilateral human rights dialogue with several countries, and is willing to provide and exchange issues of mutual concern in the spirit of frankness, openness, and mutual respect,” she added.
