President Tran Dai Quang was a friend of the US-Vietnam relationship. His hosting of President Donald J. Trump’s historic state visit to Hanoi in November 2017 helped advance the US-Vietnam Comprehensive Partnership to new heights on the basis of mutual understanding, 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", the statement wrote.
President Quang died of a rare viral illness at 10:05 am on September 21 at the National Military Hospital 108, the healthcare division of central officials informed, without specifying his disease.
