Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang gave the remarks during a press conference held today [April 21] in response to questions about upgrading the Vietnam – US relations to a strategic partnership.

“There has been strong progress in the US-Vietnam relations over the years,” Hang said.

According to Hang, Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has accepted the invitation from US President Joe Biden to join the summit and visit the US.

“After 27 years of the establishment of diplomatic relations, both Vietnam and the US have witnessed significant progress in the bilateral partnership for mutual benefits, and based on respecting Vietnam’s territorial integrity and political regime,” Hang said.
