43
The strike team of the US Navy led by the nuclear aircraft carrier Carl Vinson will visit the Vietnamese port of Danang in March, the visit has already been agreed by the parties, reports TASS message of the newspaper Nikkei.




The newspaper reminds that Carl Vinson will go to Vietnam "for the first time after the end of the war in the country in 1975 and the evacuation of American troops from there."

This carrier group is currently visiting the Philippines.

“After that, it is expected that she will patrol in the South China Sea to put pressure on Beijing, which is rapidly strengthening its military positions in this strategically important area,” the newspaper writes.

The publication adds that the approach of Carl Vinson to Vietnam "is intended to emphasize the rapprochement of this country with the United States and the strengthening of their relations in the field of security to deter China".

In particular, in 2016, the US government lifted the ban on arms supplies to Hanoi, in addition, Washington is trying to convince the Vietnamese authorities to diversify sources of procurement weaponsby reducing their deliveries from Russia.

          No, this is a syndrome of promised money, investment and economic preferences that prevail over national pride and memory.

          Vietnam has always tried to pursue an independent foreign policy since the formation of the state in 1945. It is not necessary to think, for example, that during the American aggression in Vietnam in the 60-70s of the last century, the Vietnamese leadership was completely subordinate to instructions from Moscow. This has never happened before. It’s just that during the years of the war against US intervention, the interests of our countries coincided.

          Since the late 80s, Vietnam began to carry out reforms, which, inter alia, imply the openness of this country to cooperate with the capitalist world. The Vietnamese realized that you couldn’t go far from ideology alone and started looking for investments, new technologies all over the world.

          It should be understood that Russia today is not a communist country, which means that we are not talking about ideological closeness between our states. Therefore, choosing between Russia and the USA, for example, Vietnam will make a choice in favor of the United States, since it sees more benefits for itself from economic cooperation with them. Therefore, in the Vietnamese press you can find allegations that the United States is a friendly country.

            The United States lifted the arms embargo on Vietnam. Wait, soon Vietnam will start massively buying weapons from the USA !!! Then Vietnam, despite the huge trade turnover with China, is wary of China and its claims to the islands ... Vietnam understands that the USA, and not Russia, can really restrain China in this matter .... politics !!!

    I wonder how the Vietnamese people relate to this? Still alive witnesses are left of that atrocity that mattresses created there. Or do they have a historical memory of Byad-Byad?

    Although what is surprising, the traditional Asian mentality.

    “After that, she is expected to patrol the South China Sea in order to put pressure on Beijing, which is rapidly strengthening its military position in this strategically important area.”
    First, they will push to China, and then they will sail and strengthen in Vietnam. Wisely, in the Trump style.

No. It remains to wish Vinson to remain in the coastal shallow waters of Vietnam forever, because the goals of his visits are far from good! soldier
