Two American congressional representatives introduced a bipartisan resolution on July 31, which among other things, affirms a US policy to establish and implement a policy framework with the Vietnamese government.
Rep. J. Randy Forbes, Chairman of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee, and Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, expressed the vital national security interests the United States has in deepening and expanding its comprehensive partnership with Vietnam.
The interests include the sale or transfer of United States defense articles appropriate for the development and maintenance of Vietnam’s external defense capabilities, excluding those items that can be used to suppress protesters, control crowds, or other domestic security purposes, the resolution said.
Generally, the resolution reaffirms US support for freedom of navigation in the Asia-Pacific region and urging the peaceful resolution of outstanding territorial disputes.
