US Vice President Kamala Harris will make her first official visit to Singapore and Vietnam next month, the White House announced on July 30.

Harris' trip to Vietnam will be the first by a US vice president, and will "engage the leaders of both governments on issues of mutual interest, including regional security, the global response to the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, and our joint efforts to promote a rules-based international order."

"President Biden and Vice President Harris have made it a top priority to rebuild our global partnerships and keep our nation secure, and this upcoming visit continues that work – deepening our engagement in Southeast Asia," the White House said in a statement.

"The vice president will also affirm and celebrate the strong cultural and people-to-people ties between the United States and these countries."

The White House did not provide details on the dates of the trip.

Harris' visit comes after US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin made his official trip to Vietnam on July 28 and 29, at the invitation of Vietnamese Minister of National Defence General Phan Van Giang.

Austin also visited Singapore and the Philippines.

While in Vietnam, he met with Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh, President Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Minister of National Defence General Phan Van Giang as well as witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in searching, gathering and identifying the remains of Vietnamese martyrs.

The visit contributed to strengthening friendship and trust between the people and armies of the two countries, and implementing defence cooperation contents signed between the two defence ministries and agreements reached by the two nations’ high-ranking leaders, thus contributing to the framework of the Vietnam-US comprehensive partnership.
