Vietnam offered lots of smiles for Putie but not much else.

Actually much of those products or fabrication of those products were made in China sent to Vietnam for final assembly. So not a smart move for diversifying away from China !

Such remarks by senior officials from America is so ungrateful to their Vietnam war veterans, many of that generation died and many were handicapped because of Vietnam, how tragic !

Because of the Vietnam war, not because of Vietnam.

trust between the two countries was at an “all-time high,”

Some in Vietnam realize they can make some deals with the US, but they all remember the great damage the US caused to Vietnam during the war.

It may take another generation or two before the memories of the war fade, unfortunately.

But they all know that a rising China is worse for them.

Sounds like a cope mechanism from a unipolar space cadet.

Did they pay reparations yet?

Oh, I see.

Put them under a trade embargo (sanctions) and didn't pay anything for the carnage.

How convenient.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for East Asia and Pacific Affairs Daniel Kritenbrink insisted that his trip was unrelated to Putin's visit on Thursday.

Kirby, at the press conference before the trip, said that Americans, among other information, expected to receive information about the results of Putin's visit. Kritenbrink rushed to Vietnam to collect the fragments of the former American empire. Why didn’t he look into North Korea?

As usual, in the American style, first they gave a bomb, then they gave money. with the Japanese it’s the same story: first a bomb, then money in order to formalize friendship.

No, because Vietnam is a reasonable country. They know the US's actions made sense at the time.

Vietnam and North Korea are part of the US empire now? Really broad opinion of our reach, but makes sense for the terrified.

You know perfectly well what I meant. These are the areas of claim in the course of American history. And if it were not Soviet aviation, such a country as the DPRK would not be on the map now. I'm not even talking about Vietnam. Of course, this is not literally part of the American empire :) Have the Vietnamese already forgiven you for napalm? Besides, you, Americans and your allies, took more than 3,000 Vietnamese children from there and never returned them to their parents.
