Đắk Lắk terrorism attacks: No ethnic discrimination in Việt Nam, foreign ministry says

January 25, 2024

HÀ NỘI — Việt Nam completely refuted the idea that there has been discrimination based on ethnicities in connection with last week's trial of a terrorism case in Đắk Lắk Province. "All ethnicities living in a territory of Việt Nam are equal," Hằng said, adding that the Government of Việt Nam always reserves "special priorities for ethnic minorities," especially in socio-economic development and improvement of their lives. Ninety-two defendants in the case were ordered to pay compensation for agencies, organisations and individuals suffering material and mental damage. Hằng noted that this is not the first time that this organisation has put forward accusatory arguments with malicious intent, targeting Việt Nam and aiming to sabotage socio-economic development and create a distance between the international community and Việt Nam. "The efforts, determinations and achievements of the government of Việt Nam in ensuring the basic rights of humans have been demonstrated through the results of the socio-economic development of Việt Nam, and has been widely recognised and appreciated by the international community," Hằng stressed.
