Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang on June 15 provided the latest
information about Vietnamese citizens in Qatar, where political tension remains,
noting that their situation is stable.

At the ministry’s regular press conference, Hang
said the Vietnamese Embassy in Qatar has regularly updated relevant
developments in the country and assured that the situation of Vietnamese there
is stable and hasn’t had any major changes.

The embassy is keeping close contact with
companies sending Vietnamese workers to Qatar and the workers’ liaison board in
the country to update the situation of Qatar to the Vietnamese community there.
It has also advised the citizens to work and live as normal and asked them to
maintain communication with the embassy to receive timely assistance when
needed.

The Foreign Ministry is also coordinating
closely with domestic agencies to provide citizen protection measures when necessary,
the spokesperson said.

Regarding the trial of Doan Thi Huong, a suspect
in the death of a Democratic People’s Republic of Korean citizen, and the
preparation for her fourth trial, Hang quoted the Vietnamese Embassy in
Malaysia as saying that Huong is in stable physical and spiritual condition.

She added the Foreign Ministry is working
closely with domestic relevant agencies, the Vietnamese Embassy in Malaysia,
the Vietnam Bar Federation, and Malaysian lawyers to protect Huong’s interests
as good as possible.

In the case of Pham Minh Hoang who was stripped
off the Vietnamese nationality, Hang said Pham Minh Hoang violated law and
national security. The stripping of nationality was made in line with
regulations of Vietnamese law. Authorised agencies of Vietnam notified Hoang
and the French Embassy in Hanoi of this issue.-VNA
