Letter from Eight Vietnamese Democracy and Human Rights Organizations
July 11, 2015
The Honorable Ted Osius
US Ambassador to Vietnam
Dear Ambassador Osius:
We would like to thank you for coming to Southern California and meeting with our organizations.
We believe that the time has come for political change in Vietnam and the U.S. should stand with the activists on the ground in Vietnam and support the change process.
The following are issues that represent the common concerns of our organizations. We respectfully urge you to give them your attention and help advocate for these issues as US Ambassador to Vietnam:
We believe that this is the time for Vietnam to change positively and our country, the United States of America, is in a good position as an agent of change. If Vietnam is to response constructively to the above issues, both countries will certainly be benefit with the long-term stability inSouth East Asia.
We are looking forward for a constructive and frank discussion with you and the organizations present here today.
Once again, thank you for a candid and fruitful discussion on issues related to democracy and human rights in Vietnam. We look forward to maintaining this positive interaction.
