Emphasising that everything achieved in recent years was not accidental or inevitable but required strong efforts of the two countries’ leaders, President Biden said 10 years ago, when he was Vice President, the two nations reached a new milestone with the establishment of a comprehensive partnership.

He said that he is incredibly proud of the way the two countries and their people have built trust and understanding over the decades, and work to handle post-war consequences, including clearing unexploded ordnance, remediating environmental pollution caused by dioxin, expanding support programmes for people with disabilities, and searching for and repatriating the remains of American service-members and Vietnam soldiers still missing from the war in Vietnam.

Biden said that he looks forward to a new chapter in the relationship of the two countries.
