Vietnam vehemently opposes Khmer Kampuchea Krom extremists for organizing illegal demonstrations and burning Vietnamese flag in Phnom Penh on August 12, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Hai Binh.

In response to the incident, the Vietnamese official on August 13 described this as brazen acts of deliberately hurting the feelings of the Vietnamese people which are not in conformity with the sound relations of neighbourliness and traditional friendship between Vietnam and Cambodia.

“We request Cambodia to bring these extremists to trial under law and take effective measures to prevent the future reoccurrence.” Binh added.
