Vietnam and US Relations: From “Former Foe to Comprehensive Partner”

International news Tuesday, 11:30 27-04-2021

Vietnam and US bilateral relations have gone through a long way of healing and has not been “easy for both” since the normalization of diplomatic ties. During recent years, the relations between the two countries have seen remarkable development. In July 2013, Vietnam President Truong Tan Sang and US President Barack Obama issued the common statement about the “comprehensive partnership”. Vietnam and US comprehensive partnership has been regarded as the outcome of gradual development in the bilateral relationship since the Cold War ended and as the result of the US strategy of “rebalancing Asia”, which really contributed to the development of the relations between the two countries.
