Twenty years of Vietnam-US relations: Short Journey with great strides

The 20th anniversary of diplomatic relations is a critical moment for Vietnam and the US to reflect upon the past and look forward to a better future for both countries as well as for peace, cooperation and development in the Asia-Pacific and the world at large.

“20 years is a long period for one's lifetime. Yet, it is merely a fleeting moment in the history of relations between nations. Few people could have imagined that Vietnam and the United States would make such great strides in their bilateral ties after two decades of normalized relations," wrote Pham Binh Minh, member of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee, Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister.
