Vietnam has a peaceful, well-educated society without violence, in which the people are friendly, the ambassador said in an interview granted to the Vietnam News Agency on the occasion of the New Year.
He emphasized that Vietnam is a country where human rights are respected. This is shown through the country’s active engagement in UN peacekeeping activities.
Congratulating Vietnam on its election to the UN Human Rights Council, Ambassador Abdelhamid expressed his belief that Vietnam will be a good representative of the council and will work hard to protect human rights without any discrimination.
He expressed his admiration for progress and socio-economic achievements that Vietnam has gained since the country launched the “Doi Moi” (Renewal) cause in 1986. The far vision and wise choice as well as proper policies of Vietnamese leaders have helped the country make great strides in socio-economic development, he said.
