NDO/VNA – The Consular Department under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has warned Vietnamese citizens not to travel to Syria or regions in its vicinity until stability is re-established in the Middle East nation.

The move aims to avoid any possible dangers or risks.

In case of emergency, Vietnamese citizens are recommended to contact the Vietnamese Embassy in Iran (cum Syria) via its hotline +98.21.2411670 or their relatives in Vietnam can call the citizen protection hotline +84.981.84.84.84 for timely support.

The US, the UK, and France launched a series of coordinated air strikes on Syria at 4 am (local time or 2am GMT) on April 14, involving planes and ship-launched missiles, with more than 100 projectiles in all, in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack.
