He emphasised Viet Nam’s diplomatic efforts amid the pandemic and affirmed that high-level mutual visits and meetings which have taken place and will be organised have been helping to intensify the Viet Nam-US comprehensive partnership and contributing to peace, cooperation, and development in the Asia-Pacific region.

Taking part in the celebration, Kurt Campbell, Deputy Assistant to the US President and Coordinator for Indo-Pacific Affairs on the National Security Council, highly valued the two countries’ mutual assistance in the most trying times of the COVID-19 pandemic, as seen in Viet Nam’s presentation of personal protective equipment to the US and the latter’s donation of vaccine to the former.

At the event, many international friends and Vietnamese people in the US offered congratulations on Viet Nam’s National Day, expressing their belief that the two countries’ relations will keep flourishing, and Viet Nam will surmount pandemic-caused difficulties soon, recover, and develop sustainably.
