Next month, Vice President Kamala Harris will visit Singapore and Vietnam, “two of the most important Indo-Pacific partners” of the United States, the White House said on Friday.

Vietnamese President Nguyen Xuan Phuc announced Harris’ visit on Thursday, during talks with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, the first representative of the Biden administration to visit Vietnam.

In a statement Friday, White House Senior Adviser Simon Sanders said that Harris is going to discuss “with the leaders of both governments issues of mutual interest, including regional security, the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change and our joint efforts to promote an international order based on basic principles.”

“The upcoming visit is a continuation of the work to deepen our interaction with Southeast Asia,” Sanders said, ” Vice President Harris will become the first vice president ever to visit Vietnam.”

A specific date of the trip has not yet been indicated.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin visited Vietnam this week at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The visit of the head of the Pentagon took place just a few days after the United States sent 3 million doses of the Moderna vaccine against COVID-19 to the Vietnamese. In total, Vietnam received 5 million doses of the vaccine from the United States.
