Vatican, Vietnam resume talks on diplomatic relations

June 12, 2013

Representatives of the Holy See and the Vietnamese government will soon begin a fourth round of meetings devoted to the establishment of diplomatic relations.

The Communist nation of 91.5 million is 7% Catholic and is one of the few nations that does not have diplomatic relations with the Holy See.

In a brief statement, Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Holy See Press Office, expressed hope that the two days of meetings, which begin on June 13 at the Vatican, “will serve to deepen and develop bilateral relations between Vietnam and the Holy See.”
