(VOVWORLD) - The report of United Nations (UN) agencies in Vietnam under the 4th cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism contains many inaccurate and unverified contents, along with many assessments that are biased and do not accurately and fully reflect the situation, efforts and achievements of Vietnam in protecting and promoting human rights, said Foreign Ministry Deputy Spokesperson Doan Khac Viet.

At a regular press conference in Hanoi on Thursday, Mr. Viet expressed disappointment at the report which was released with such contents despite the UN agencies’ full presence in Vietnam and their long and comprehensive cooperation with various Vietnamese ministries, agencies and localities.

According to the deputy spokesman, the process of building Vietnam's 4th cycle UPR National Report was carried out in a serious and comprehensive manner with the full participation of relevant stakeholders and UN agencies in Vietnam.

Also at the press conference, answering a reporter's query about Vietnam's stance on the continuous military exercises in the East Sea (known internationally as the South China Sea) by some countries in recent times, Mr. Viet said that maintaining peace, stability, security, maritime safety and freedom of aviation and navigation in the East Sea - one of the most important waters in the region - in accordance with international law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), is a common goal, interest and responsibility of all nations.

Vietnam requests that activities of the relevant parties and countries comply with international law, especially UNCLOS, and also positively contribute to fulfilling the above goals, he said.
