Vietnam regretted that some contents in the remarks of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the 18th Shangri-La Dialogue and on his Facebook page did not objectively reflect the historical truth, causing negative impacts on public opinions, the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang has said.
She made the statement in response
to reporters’ queries on June 4th about Vietnam’s
comments on the speech of the Singaporean Prime Minister at the dialogue and
the information posted on his Facebook page on May 31st saying Vietnam had "invaded” and "occupied” Cambodia.
Vietnam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs
had discussed this issue with Singapore’s
counterpart, she said.
The contribution and sacrifice of Vietnam in the
joint efforts with Cambodian people to end the Khmer Rouge genocide regime have
been widely recognised, Hang said.
On November 16th, 2018, the
Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) issued a verdict on the
crime against humanity committed by the Khmer Rouge.
The ruling reflected objectively
the historical truth, enforcing justice and making fair restitution to victims,
which was welcomed by the international community and the United Nations, she
The recent accomplishments of
ASEAN are the result of joint efforts of all member nations throughout the
history of the association, the Spokesperson said, adding that each member is
deeply aware of the importance of strengthening the intra-bloc solidarity based
on mutual respect and ASEAN’s common principles.
As an active and responsible
member of ASEAN, Vietnam has and will continue working with other members to
build a strong ASEAN community of unity and solidarity playing the central role
in the region, the spokesperson declared./.
