VGP – Two Viet Nam Airlines flights brought home more than 390 Vietnamese citizens from Myanmar on Thursday.

The Embassy of Viet Nam in Myanmar sent its staff to assist these people to complete all required procedures before boarding the flights.

The passengers onboard these flights include children aged under 18, the elderly, and others in disadvantaged circumstances.

After landed at the Da Nang International Airport, all the passengers received medical checks and were quarantined in accordance with the current regulations on COVID-19 responses.

Speaking at the Informal ASEAN Ministerial Meeting held digitally on March 2, Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh called on parties in Myanmar to exercise full restraint and avoid all acts of violence to ensure safety for citizens and organize peace dialogues in order to soon stabilize the situation.

He said that escalating violence and tensions, which have caused human losses in Myanmar recently, have affected peace and stability in not only Myanmar but also the whole region.

Minh suggested ASEAN should coordinate closely and promote the role and effectiveness of the existing mechanisms and tools, including working with global organizations and mechanisms such as the United Nations to help Myanmar stabilize the situation  for the benefits of its people and nation as well as for peace and stability in the region, and for solidarity and prestige of ASEAN./.
