VN ex­presses con­cern over Gaza vi­o­lence

Viet Nam News - - NATIONAL -

HAØ NOIÄ — Vi­etä Nam is con­cerned about es­ca­lat­ing ten­sion and vi­o­lence in the Gaza Strip over re­cent days, which killed and in­jured many Pales­tini­ans, Foreign Min­istry Spokesper­son Leâ Thò Thu Hanè g said at a reg­u­lar press brief­ing yes­ter­day.

Re­ply­ing to ques­tions about Vieät Nam’s re­ac­tion to the US’s open­ing of its em­bassy in Jerusalem and rising ten­sion in the re­gion, the spokesper­son said Vieät Nam protests the use of vi­o­lence and calls for re­straint and an end to es­ca­lat­ing ten­sions.

“Vi­etä Nam once again calls for the set­tle­ment of con­flicts by peace­ful mea­sures and efforts to seek a com­pre­hen­sive, fair and sus­tain­able so­lu­tion, while en­sur­ing safety for civil­ians and the le­git­i­mate in­ter­ests of con­cerned par­ties as well as peace and sta­bil­ity in the re­gion,” Hanè g said.

She stressed Vi­etä Nam’s stance that all solutions re­lated to Jerusalem should ad­here to in­ter­na­tional law, es­pe­cially res­o­lu­tions of the United Na­tions, with con­sen­sus of re­lated par­ties.

“Vi­etä Nam main­tains the con­sis­tent po­si­tion of sup­port­ing the just strug­gle of the Pales­tinian peo­ple and the two-State so­lu­tion with the es­tab­lish­ment of a State of Pales­tine that co-ex­ists in peace with the State of Is­rael along the pre-1967 border and with East Jerusalem as the cap­i­tal of the Pales­tine,” the spokesper­son said.

Re­gard­ing the US’s with­drawal from the Iran nu­clear deal, the spokesper­son made clear that Vi­etä Nam sup­ports di­a­logue to seek peace­ful solutions to all dis­putes.

“We hope that all par­ties of the Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tions (JCPOA) will per­se­vere in ne­go­ti­at­ing to find a so­lu­tion that can bring long-term peace and sta­bil­ity for the re­gion and the world as a whole,” she said.

Asked to com­ment on the meet­ing be­tween US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and leader of the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Sin­ga­pore, spokesper­son Hanè g said Vi­etä Nam sup­ports all con­struc­tive efforts to set­tle dis­putes through peace­ful di­a­logue, con­tribut­ing to peace, se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity on the Korean penin­sula in par­tic­u­lar and the world in gen­eral. — VNS
