Dear High Representative Mogherini,

Dear Commissioner Malmström,


On behalf of the Members of the European Parliament across political Parties who signed, please find attached a Joint letter where we urge you to push for robust progress in Vietnam’s human rights record ahead of the possible ratification of the EU-Vietnam Free Trade Agreement (EVFTA).

Unless Vietnam makes a good faith effort to address these pressing human rights issues and demonstrates concrete improvements and commitment to respect all human rights before Parliament vote, it will be difficult for us to give our consent to the agreement.


Thank you for your kind attention


Yours sincerely,
