Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on August 4 urged the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MOLISA) to urgently make plans to bring home all Vietnamese workers from Libya before the situation becomes worse.

At first, the ministry needs to promptly take 281 people working in the two areas of hostilities, the capital Tripoli and Bengazi city, to Vietnam while halting the sending of Vietnamese workers to Libya.

The Foreign Ministry and Vietnamese representative agencies in Libya were required to keep a close watch on the situation and actively work with the MOLISA to take measures to ensure the safety of Vietnamese citizens in Libya.

At the same time, PM Dung also gave the nod to the use of the Overseas Labour Support Fund to buy flight tickets for Vietnamese workers in case that their employers cannot afford to pay.-VNA
