Under its external policy of independence, self-reliance, being ready to be a trustworthy partner to make active contributions to peace, stability and development in the region and the world, and following the principle of respecting independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and political regime of each other, Vietnam always considers the US one of its top important partners.

Once again, Vietnam sincerely thanks the US for its timely, effective and valuable support to the country in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, Viet said.
