All Vietnamese workers in Libya move out of danger


The last Vietnamese guest workers at fighting zones in strife-torn Libya have moved out of dangerous areas, Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh said on August 14, citing the source of information from the Vietnamese Embassies in Libya, Egypt, and Turkey.

Updating the media on the evacuation work at the ministry’s regular press conference, Binh said that as of August 13, 907 workers landed Vietnam while 294 others are in Libya’s neighbours of Tunisia, Turkey and Egypt.

Over the past days, the ministry directed Vietnamese representative offices in France, Germany, Qatar, Malaysia, Egypt and Algeria to promptly work with host authorised agencies to support the workers’ transit before flying home, Binh said.

The Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Vietnamese representative offices in the countries involved, export companies, and employers are keeping a close watch on the situation as well as close contact with the Vietnamese workers, while actively coordinating with host authorities to provide maximum support for their departure, he added.-VNA
