The Vietnamese State ’s consistent policy is to respect and ensure the people’s right to religious freedom, affirmed Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nguyen Phuong Nga.

Nga made the statement on March 31 while answering reporters’ questions on Vietnam ’s reaction to information in a Human Rights Watch (HRW) report issued on March 30 relating to the religious situation in Vietnam .

“We reject incorrect information in the HRW March 30 report,” she stressed.

In fact, the development of religions and plentiful religious activities of the people, which have been appreciated by many foreign individuals and organisations in particular and the international community in general, are a vivid evidence of freedom of religions and beliefs in Vietnam, the spokesperson said./.
