The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said a 2011 human rights report released Thursday by the US Department of State contained "non-objective" remarks based on false information about human rights issues in Vietnam.

On Saturday, ministry spokesman Luong Thanh Nghi said Vietnam and the US had seen a lot of progress in their relations recently and both countries continue to hold regular talks on issues of mutual concern, including human rights.

"Maintaining dialogues with each other in a frank but constructive and respectful manner has helped increase understanding and develop relations between the two countries, for the interest of the two countries' peoples.

"The US Department of State's 2011 report on global human rights, while recognizing many important achievements Vietnam has made in ensuring human rights for Vietnamese people, regrettably still continues to make some partial remarks based on incorrect information about human rights issues in Vietnam," Nghi said.
