The US State Department’s presentation of 2012 International Women of
Courage Award to a violator of Vietnamese law is erroneous, spokesman
for the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry Luong Thanh Nghi has stated.

In replying to a reporter’s question asking for Vietnam ’s comments
on the US State Department giving 2012 International Women of Courage
Award to Ta Phong Tan, spokesman Nghi said “ Vietnam protests the
decision to present the award to an individual who has breached
Vietnamese law.”

This action is an intervention into Vietnam
’s internal affairs, which is detrimental to the development of two
countries’ relationship, Nghi said.-VNA
