She noted the arrangement for the visit is made in the spirit of the Vietnam – US comprehensive partnership, which has been growing robustly and practically across all fields in contribution to peace, stability, cooperation, and development in the region and around the world. She added that the specific programme of the US Vice President’s visit will be announced at an appropriate time

Hang stated that Vietnam pursues a consistent external relations policy of independence, self-reliance, multilateralisation, and diversification. The country is stepping up efforts to deepen relations with partners, especially important ones, toward effectiveness and sustainability, she said, stressing that Vietnam does not align with one country to fight against another.

The diplomat continued to affirm that Vietnam always attaches importance to strengthening relations with China and the US – its two top partners in multiple fields – for the sake of the people as well as for peace and development in the region and across the globe.
Last week, the White House confirmed US Vice President Kamala Harris will pay a visit to Vietnam this August.
