Excited to meet with Mission Vietnam colleagues on my first visit to #Vietnam. Thank you again for all your hard work in putting together the excellent @POTUS trip last fall for @APEC and for making my inaugural visit here a resounding success. #MeetWithMike pic.twitter.com/Os6PlIsR71— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) July 8, 2018
Enjoyed my walk in Hanoi with Amb. Kritenbrink. The American and Vietnamese people have a meaningful relationship, full of potential. Glad I had a chance to visit and build on those ties. pic.twitter.com/TFXWl6ToLE— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) July 9, 2018
Before I arrived in Hanoi, #Vietnam handed over the remains of 2 US servicemembers. This same act 45 yrs ago built trust between our nations. Today we have a strong relationship. #DPRK committed to repatriate remains as well. This step will build trust & confidence btw US & DPRK. pic.twitter.com/xQbEfVxj3O— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) July 9, 2018
