Vietnam asks US to lift embargo against Cuba

Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang has answered reporters’ question regarding the US’s recent adjustment of its policy towards Cuba, noting that the US needs to lift its embargo against Cuba.


“Vietnam objects to any unilateral embargoes that a country imposes on another country,” she said on June 23.

Hang added Vietnam wants Cuba and the US to resolve disagreements through negotiation and dialogue in the spirit of respecting each other’s independence and sovereignty and looking towards the full normalisation of bilateral relations, for the legitimate interests of the two countries’ people, thereby actively contributing to the maintenance of peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world.

“Vietnam calls on the US to lift its embargo against Cuba which has been enforced for more than five decades,” the spokesperson noted.
