How One-Time Rivals Virtually Became Best Friends in Light of the Rise of China

In late August 2021, Kamala Harris was the first US Vice President to visit the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi since establishing diplomatic relations with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam 26 years ago. That her first trip to Asia after assuming office led her, besides Singapore, to Vietnam of all places, reflects the Southeast Asian state’s strategic importance for Washington. Hanoi, too, is aware of the significance attached to this “comprehensive partnership”.
