He affirmed Viet Nam’s external policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, friendship, cooperation, development, multilateralisation and diversification of foreign relations, and active international integration, adding that Viet Nam hopes to further strengthen the Viet Nam-US comprehensive partnership.

The Party chief asked the ambassador to convey his gratitude to US President Joe Biden for his congratulations on the Vietnamese leader’s re-election as the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Viet Nam.

Through the ambassador, he invited the US President to visit Viet Nam soon. He expressed his belief that the Viet Nam-US relationship will be further developed in an effective and practical manner in the working tenure of President Biden.

He said he believed that with strategic, capable and practical leaders, Viet Nam will continue to make stronger steps forwards. The diplomat thanked the leaders of the Party, State, ministries and sectors of Viet Nam for supporting and coordinating with him so that he can complete his mission.

Showing delight at the positive, practical and effective expansion of the Viet Nam-US relations over the years, he reaffirmed that the US attaches importance to and hopes to further deepen the comprehensive partnership with Viet Nam in all fields on the basis of mutual respect to each other’s independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and political institution.
