VECO keeps close watch on settlement of Vietnamese death in Chinese Taiwan

Hanoi, September 7 (VNA) - The Vietnam Economic and Cultural Office (VECO) in Taipei is still keeping a close watch and coordinating with local agencies during the investigation into and settlement of the death of a Vietnamese citizen in Chinese Taiwan, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang said. 

She made the remark on September 7 while responding to reporters’ question about the death of Nguyen Quoc Phi in Taiwan. 

She cited the VECO as saying that Phi’s family had come to Taiwan and the Taipei-based office had coordinated with local authorised agencies to assist the family to carry out relevant procedures. 

The VECO worked directly with local agencies and asked them to promptly investigate the incident, Hang noted, adding that it will continue activities to protect the rights and legitimate interests of the deceased. 

On August 31, the VECO had received official information about the death of Phi from competent agencies of Taiwan. It immediately requested the Taiwanese side to inquire into the case and coordinate with Vietnam in the incident settlement. 

At the regular press conference, Spokesperson Hang also informed the media about some external activities of Vietnam in the time ahead.
