The first American aircraft carrier to visit Vietnam

59
The US military command reports that the Pentagon for the first time managed to agree with the official Hanoi on the visit of its aircraft carrier to Vietnam. The agreements were reached in Washington with the direct participation of US Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Vietnam Ngon Xuan Lithuania.

The first American aircraft carrier to visit Vietnam


According to Mattis, Washington is interested in strengthening military-technical cooperation with Vietnam. Stated first in stories The entry of the American aircraft carrier into the Vietnamese port will be carried out in 2018 year. It was added that Washington and Hanoi "are on the path of cooperation in terms of information sharing." Reports about it RIA News with reference to the press service of the White House. About the exchange of what kind of information in question, the Pentagon is not reported.

Mattis recalled that as part of the deepening of military-technical cooperation and security cooperation, the United States handed over to Vietnam a patrol ship, which had previously been part of the United States Coast Guard. At the same time, the US Secretary of Defense added that "the States will support Vietnam on free shipping in the South China Sea." This is a clear hint of the disputes between Hanoi and Beijing over the territorial identity of the islands in the waters of this sea, as well as the hint that Washington is ready for cooperation against China.

I wonder if the United States will deliver the downed pilot (now senator) McCain as a confirmation of his intentions to cooperate with Hanoi on a visit to a memorial pit in which he had the good fortune to visit at the time? ..

    Vietnam has become liberalistic? They burned their mattresses with napalm .... Now they are inviting mattresses to visit with the aircraft carrier.
    The most formidable weapon is a mixture of Coca-Cola - chewing gum - jeans. So the Vietnamese sold out.
    Instead of demanding reparation, Vietnam invites the aggressor to visit, while the guest will be on an aircraft carrier. request

    In general, the Vietnamese mattresses were bent.

        This visit clearly confirms that in politics there are no eternal enemies, nor eternal friends. Pragmatism rules the world, and smart states only benefit from this! Not everyone can record the whole world as their enemies and achieve a phenomenal result - when a country has no ONE friend in the whole planet! Prior to this, no state has succeeded SUCH in history!

        I feel. And I tell my children that the Germans killed my grandfathers. The Germans came to us with the war twice in a hundred years.
        And now the Germans are at war with us.
        I will remind Liberasts that the Germans are behind the war in Ukraine. The Germans again support the killing of Russians in the Donbass.
        The German Siemens received money for the turbines and requires their return if only the Russians in Crimea suffered.
        so that as they were bastards, they remained.

          Aleksey777777777777777, you sent me a text with the headline "PRAYER FOR CONCILIATION OF THE HARMFUL"
          I will answer you:
          Europeans (and Germans among them) recognized the buggers. They legalized their marriage. And they propagate propaganda of buggers among children. And they climb to us with this.
          This is worse than the wars with which they came to us earlier.
          And this is called sin in the Bible.
          So, do not interfere with both prayers and sins in a heap. You already decide who you are.

        The Vietnamese remember everything and vryatli Americans will ever forgive everything that they have done with their people. Just the Vietnamese love gifts, even from a former enemy. Our government does not know that America is a country assembled from a different rabble without a nation, the enemy our state! Yes, of course they know, but they are conducting a dialogue! In my opinion, Vietnam is acting wisely.

      And where do they go? Their clear adversary is China. And today Russia is on the side of China.

      So they have someone to take an example from. With the "senior ally" who back in the late 80s and then in the 90s finally sold to the same Americans. Or will you deny ..?
      In general, the Vietnamese mattresses were bent.

      In the 90s, mattresses and Russia bent over. So again, the Vietnamese have someone to take an example from. Unfortunately negative.

    They quickly forgot who tormented them with napalm and dioxin for many years. But in the 70, there were few vocational schools of the Union, the hostels of which were almost half full of the long-suffering children of the brotherly people, and in secondary and higher institutions they were not uncommon, but rather, a common occurrence of those years.
    By temporary standards, it is precisely this generation that is now in its prime and is steering at all levels - you cannot see grandfathers like Ho Chi Minh! Only they rule apparently, like all former brothers "to the grave" - ​​according to the law of the weather vane.

    It is interesting to read such comments. Should someone agree on something with the United States, for example, on the visit of the same aircraft carrier, they immediately sold out, caved in, etc.
    By your logic, probably we "caved in" and "sold out" the same Federal Republic of Germany. And what. After all, 72 years ago we fought with them. The losses of the Union amounted to tens of millions of citizens. Germany sold out? Or should one still have proudly “Do not have anything to do with them”? Do not confuse the memory of the people (Russian or Vietnamese) and the current political situation. Vietnam has a fairly large neighbor - China, but alas, there is no counterweight to this neighbor in the person of the Soviet Union. Therefore, the policy of Vietnam is multivector. Somewhere they got help from us, somewhere from the Americans. And this does not mean that "sold out" and "caved in"
