Rice emphasizes human rights

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday that the Bush administration is pressing Vietnam on the human rights issue. The statement came in response to a query about Fr. Nguyen Van Ly, from Congressman Frank Wolf during congressional hearings. Rice said she recently told Vietnam’s foreign minister "in no uncertain terms that human rights is going to have to be a very big part of our agenda, and we'll continue to press the case."
