Thanh Nien News March 20: Vietnam Tells US to Distinguish between Protesters and Criminals

Vietnam, March 20, 2007

The US routinely uses “religious freedom” as a cause to “work” with Vietnam.
It has sent many delegations to Vietnam on fact-finding visits to meet “witnesses”.
Deputy Minister of Public Security Senior Lieutenant General Nguyen Van Huong has, since 2003, received many high-profile US guests, including John Hanford, Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, Senator Sam Brownback, not to mention ambassador to Vietnam, Michael Marine.
