Washington, DC - We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of President Tran Dai Quang of Vietnam. Our thoughts and prayers go out to President Quang’s family and the people of Vietnam during this difficult time.
President Quang was a strong supporter of the U.S.-Vietnam relationship, helping advance our bilateral partnership to new heights on the basis of mutual respect, shared interests, and a common desire to promote peace, cooperation, prosperity, and security in the Indo-Pacific region.
We honor his legacy and mourn his loss alongside his family and our friends, the people of Vietnam.
