The Mexico-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians Group has voiced their support for Vietnamese Agent Orange/dioxin victims in their fight for justice.
In their letters sent to the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) and the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange/dioxin (VAVA) on August 11, the group’s members expressed their friendship solidarity with the victims and sympathy over the sufferings and losses caused by the war, especially the Agent Orange disaster.
The Mexican MPs also agreed to support Vietnamese people, including the AO victims, in the fight for justice, demanding the US side to take full responsibility for great damage it brought about in Vietnam.
On August 4, Politburo member of the Mexican Labour Party and Head of the Mexico-Vietnam Friendship Parliamentarians Group Pedro Vazquez Gonzalez also sent a letter to VFF and VAVA, affirming his consistent solidarity with the Vietnamese people and AO/dioxin victims.
Meanwhile, the Vietnamese Embassy in France on August 10 presented more than 8,560 EUR and 2,140 USD to Vietnamese AO/dioxin victims.
The sum was contributed by the embassy staff and overseas Vietnamese in France, in response to the movement “Acting for AO/dioxin victims in Vietnam” launched by the VFF Central Committee and the VAVA to mark 50 years of the day US troops began to spray the toxic chemical in Vietnam (August 10, 1961)./.
