Việt Nam issues statement on Singapore PM’s speech at Shangri-La Dialogue

Ha Noi – Việt Nam regretted that some contents of the remarks made by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the 18th Shangri-La Dialogue and on his Facebook page did not objectively reflect the historical truth, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lê Thị Thu Hằng has said.

She made the statement in response to reporters’ queries on Tuesday about the Singaporean Prime Minister’s speech at the dialogue and the information posted on his personal website on May 31 saying Việt Nam had “invaded” and “occupied” Cambodia.

Việt Nam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs had discussed the issue with its Singaporean counterpart, she said.
