VTV.vn - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is taking necessary measures to ensure the rights and legitimate interests of a Vietnamese female worker who died in Saudi Arabia, said the ministry's spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang on October 7.

Speaking at the ministry’s online regular press conference, Hang revealed that the ministry has received information from the Embassy of Vietnam in Saudi Arabia that a Vietnamese female worker born in 1996 in the Central Highlands province of Dak Lak died on July 8 this year while being treated at Saudi Arabia’s North Medical Tower Hospital.

Upon receiving the news, the Vietnamese Embassy actively contacted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and competent agencies of Saudi Arabia to verify relevant information and join hands with the enterprise sending the worker to carry out necessary citizen protection measures.

“The Foreign Ministry has worked with domestic competent agencies and local authorities to inform and assist the bereaved family with necessary procedures,” Hang said.

She added that the ministry has also asked the Vietnamese Embassy to closely collaborate with competent agencies in the Middle East country to promptly complete relevant procedures, thereby ensuring the rights and legitimate interests of the Vietnamese citizen.
