On December 1, the EU and Vietnam held their 7th Human Rights Dialogue under the EU-Vietnam Partnership Cooperation Agreement. The EU expressed its concerns about the deterioration of civil and political rights in Vietnam and explicitly referred to essential rights like freedom of assembly, religion or belief and expression.
