Vietnamese Authorities Show No Reaction Over Its Danish Embassy Issue

The Vietnamese authorities were informed about Four North Korean nationals entered the Danish embassy compound in Vietnam on September 5, 2007 as reported by the Danish Foreign Ministry but have not given a reaction. Security at the compound has been stepped up.
Lars Thuesen, head of consular services said that Danish law does not allow people to seek asylum from a Danish embassy but the four could be aided to get in touch with the UN refugee agency, UNHCR. 
 The foreign ministry has set up a task force and organised a translator to establish what the four want, Thuesen told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa. It was not known what the four, “one male and three females” wanted, but one assumption was that they wanted to travel to South Korea, noting that there have been similar cases at other Western embassies, he said.
