Replying to the queries on Vietnam's stance over the AUKUS, Vietnamese spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang affirmed that Vietnam always keeps track of current affairs in the region. “All countries strive for the same goal of peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world over”, Hang said, adding nations around the world are responsible for contributing to such a goal. 

On Australia's plan to build a nuclear submarine fleet, Hang said: “The nuclear energy must be developed and used for peaceful purposes and serve socio-economic development, ensuring safety for humans and the environment".
