Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said that whoever is the US President - Joe Biden or Donald Trump - the US is still a friend that has a good relationship with Vietnam in the spirit of mutual respect and understanding.
Any newly-elected US President will have to face two great challenges. The first is to deal with the problem between pandemic control and socio-economic development. The second is how to close the division and strengthen solidarity within America.
