Vietnam's recent ratification of both the UN Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is a crucial and welcome step. The EU stands ready to assist Vietnam in the full implementation of these key human rights Conventions.
The EU encourages all countries worldwide to ratify these Conventions and to respect their provisions.
