(VOV) - The protection of human rights in Vietnam is consistent with its policies enshrined in law and realized through various mechanisms.
Vietnamese Ambassador Le Hoai Trung, Chief of the Vietnamese permanent mission to the United Nations (UN), made this statement on April 2 while presiding over the first session of a conference held by the UN High Commissioner of Human Rights at the UN headquarters in New York.
Vietnam has joined most UN conventions on human rights as well as those related to politics, economics, culture, society, women and children, he said.
The fact that Vietnam is taking part in this current UN conference is testimony to its consistent policy in this area and demonstrates its commitment to international duties.
The two-day conference aimed to consult with UN member countries and international organizations before devising a human rights report for the UN General Assembly.
