Kamala Harris Prepares to Visit Vietnam, Singapore to Deepen US ‘Engagement in Southeast Asia’

Kamala Harris will be the first US vice president to visit Vietnam, which is in a dispute with Beijing over territorial claims related to the South China Sea.

US Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Vietnam and Singapore in August, visits that aim to “strengthen relationships and expand economic support”, White House chief spokeswoman Symone Sanders said in a statement on Saturday.

During her Asia tour, Harris will discuss regional security, the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, as well as “our joint effort to promote a rules-based international order”, Sanders pointed out, apparently referring to the US and its allies.
