Prime Minister pledges effort to boost ties with US

During a reception in Hanoi on Tuesday for newly-accredited US Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel Kritenbrink, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc pledged to work with the US to boost bilateral ties.

Prime Minister Phuc praised Kritenbrink's contributions to enhancing Vietnam-US relations when he worked as Senior Director for Asian Affairs at the US National Security Council before being appointed Ambassador. Mr. Phuc suggested the two sides promote high-ranking delegation exchanges and urge the US government to resolve issues proposed by Vietnam during the development process of bilateral cooperative relations.

Ambassador Kritenbrink said Vietnam is one of the US's most important partners. He said he hopes both sides will tackle pending problems and seize economic and trade opportunities.
