Vietnamese Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong applauded the fruitful growth of the Vietnam - U.S. comprehensive partnership at a reception held on Monday for U.S. Ambassador Marc E. Knapper, who has recently assumed his duty in Vietnam.

Party leader Trong congratulated Knapper on his new mission in Vietnam and wished him success during his term in the Southeast Asian country, the Vietnam News Agency reported.

He also expressed his hope that the new ambassador will continue contributing to the promotion of the bilateral relations between the two countries. 

The Party chief highly appreciated the fruitful growth of the comprehensive cooperative relations between Vietnam and the U.S. in the spirit of “putting aside the past, overcoming differences, promoting similarities, and looking toward the future.”

Trong emphasized that Vietnam has long applied its foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation and development, and diversification and multilateralization of foreign relations based on mutual respect, for the sake of the two countries and for regional and global peace, friendship, and cooperation.

He told his guest that the fortune, strength, international position, and prestige that Vietnam has today should be first attributed to its sound internal and external policies.

Knapper expressed his pleasure to return to Vietnam to work as a U.S. ambassador, saying he was impressed with the recent progress in bilateral links, Vietnam’s development achievements, and its increasingly high position in the world.

The ambassador stressed that the two countries have great potential for further expanding their cooperation in various fields, including in new spheres such as epidemic response and climate change.

The U.S. supports a strong, independent, and prosperous Vietnam and will boost the development of bilateral ties in the spirit of respect for each other’s political institutions, Knapper said.

He also pledged to make every effort to contribute to the cooperative ties between Vietnam and the U.S..

Earlier on February 11, Knapper, a member of the Senior Foreign Service of the U.S. Department of State, presented his credentials to Vietnamese State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc in Hanoi as the new U.S. ambassador to Vietnam, replacing his predecessor Daniel Kritenbrink.
