Vietnam asks the Philippines to strictly handle case involving torn Vietnamese flag


The Vietnam Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reacted to the recent organised protest held in front of the Vietnamese Embassy in Manila by a group of Filipinos who used the occasion to tear Vietnamese flag.

The act of damaging the national flag of Vietnam is an insult to the feelings of the Vietnamese people and must be strongly condemned, said Vietnamese Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Pham Thu Hang at the ministry’s regular press conference in Hanoi on August 3 in reply to reporters’ question regarding Vietnam’s response to the incident.

 The red flag with a yellow star in the centre is the sacred national flag of Vietnam, she said.

The spokesperson demanded that the Philippines handle the incident seriously, take effective measures to prevent such action which could affect the sound and growing strategic partnership between the two nations.
