Speaking highly of Vietnam – U.S. bilateral defence ties over the past years, Vinh asked the U.S. to continue boosting cooperation in areas with sound joint work, focusing on post-war recovery, including addressing Agent Orange/dioxin contamination, bombs and mines disarmament, humanitarian assistance, search and rescue, and experience sharing in the United Nations peacekeeping mission.

Schriver, who is on a working visit to Vietnam, promised to convey Deputy Minister Vinh’s suggestions to the U.S. Department of Defence at the earliest.

He expressed his belief that with joint efforts, bilateral defence ties will become more practical and effective./.
