Phuc stated that the positive and continuous development of the Vietnam - US relations over the past time is importantly attributable to the contributions of left-wing forces and progressive Americans.

Vietnam appreciates the practical and valuable support of US leftists in the process of overcoming post-war consequences, and for the bilateral relations, thus bringing about substantive benefits to the two countries and peoples, and contributing to peace, stability, security and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region in general and Southeast Asia in particular.

The President affirmed that under the Communist Party of Vietnam’s sound foreign policy, Vietnam has enjoyed good relations with countries around the world despite different political regimes.

He expressed his wish that American friends continue to support the friendship and cooperation between the two countries and peoples.
