The US Department of State’s 2016 annual Human Rights report acknowledges some of Vietnam’s achievements in protecting human rights, but makes biased statements and does not reflect the real situation in Vietnam, said Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Le Hai Binh.
In response to reporters’ questions on Vietnam’s reaction to the report, Binh emphasised Vietnam’s consistent policy of protecting and promoting people’s fundamental rights.
Vietnam’s efforts and attainments in ensuring and improving people’s fundamental rights over the past years have been internationally recognised and lauded, he noted.
“Vietnam is always willing to discuss in a frank, open and constructive manner with all countries, including the US, on issues remaining differences,” he declared, adding that so far, Vietnam and the US have held 20 rounds of annual bilateral dialogues on human rights.

The Americans, aiming to leverage Hanoi’s keen interest in escaping the middle income trap, press the notion that political pluralism and proliferation of civil society institutions are essential foundations of a just and prosperous society.

Viet Nam's bid to join the Human Rights Council has its roots in the consistent policy of the Party and State on protecting and promoting human rights and actively participating in international cooperation in this field.

Human rights have become a global issue attracting the great concern of the international community, and as the Party has affirmed, human rights are also a common aspiration of mankind and the fruit of human kind's struggle through many generations.

The global community highly valued Viet Nam as a spotlight in UNHCR's agenda involving poverty reduction, food security, improvement in the human development index and fulfilment of millennium development goals ahead of schedule.
