Update: 17:38 | 19/11/2020

U.S. national security adviser Robert O’Brien left Thursday for Vietnam and the Philippines to discuss regional security cooperation, the White House National Security Council said.

He would meet leaders in both countries "to reaffirm the strength of our bilateral relationships," it tweeted on Thursday.

Reuters quoted an unnamed American official as saying O'Brien would be in Vietnam from Friday to Sunday for high-level meetings. Two weeks ago U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Hanoi where he affirmed his nation’s continued support for a strong, prosperous and independent Vietnam.
