Vietnam values comprehensive partnership with US: President
Vietnam treasures its comprehensive partnership with the US and considers the country an important partner in its foreign diplomacy, President Tran Dai Quang said at a reception in Hanoi on Monday for Senator Cory Gardner, Chairman of the US Senate's Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
President Quang praised the US's role in maintaining peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region. He recommended the two nations extend their mutual consultations and information exchange at international and regional forums and within the UN framework, especially on issues of shared concern.
Senator Gardner hailed Vietnam's stance on ensuring peace, security and freedom of navigation and overflight in the East Sea. He said he supports free trade and increasing Vietnam-US collaboration in mitigating Agent Orange impacts and clearing post-war bombs and mines.
