Vietnam, US hold defence dialogue following easing of sanctions

Vietnam and the United States have held their first defence policy dialogue since Washington announced the easing of its long-standing military sales ban on the country in early October.

A statement by the Vietnam Ministry of Defence (MoD) on 21 October said the latest defence policy meeting, held in Hanoi, focused on consolidating bilateral defence and military co-operation in activities such as search and rescue, military medicine, UN peacekeeping missions, and military training.

The MoD did not refer to potential military trade between the two countries, but instead noted that the defence policy dialogue – chaired by Vietnam’s Deputy Defence Minister, Nguyen Chi Vinh, and Amy Searight, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for South and Southeast Asia – also covered discussion about the “direction of defence co-operation in the future”.
