Foreign media highlights significance of Vietnamese President's US visit
Japanese "Sankei" newspaper commented that the visit is of historic significance, marking a new development in relations between the two countries since their normalisation of diplomatic ties.
Thailand's newspapers ran extensive coverage on the visit, calling it a watershed moment that highlights the increasingly developing economic and political relations between Viet Nam and the US.
The visit will help boost trade and economic cooperation between the two countries as a number of framework agreements on trade and investment in particular are expected to be signed, the Thai dailies said.
Radio Australia and German Online all pointed to the first visit to the US by a Vietnamese State President since the war ended in 1975 as a clear signal that both sides are eager to put the past behind them and expand on an increasingly burgeoning economic partnership.(VNA)
