The United States called on Vietnam to support the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

The call came after Vladimir Putin’s one-day visit to Hanoi as part of the Russian leader’s short tour of Asia, aimed at strengthening alliances in the face of increasing Western sanctions, reports "The Voice of America".

"We expect that any country that engages in dialogue with the Russian government, and especially hosts Russian government leaders, will make clear its respect for the principles of the UN Charter, including sovereignty and territorial integrity, and will say that these principles must be respected throughout the world,”– US State Department spokesman Matthew Miller told Voice of America at a briefing on Thursday, June 20.

White House National Security Council communications adviser John Kirby told reporters that the United States will be "focused on further deepening" comprehensive strategic partnership with Vietnam and its “expansion, improvement for our mutual benefit and for the benefit of the region.”

BAGNET recalls that Russia and Vietnam on Thursday, June 20, promised to deepen relations during Putin's state visit aimed at strengthening alliances to counter Western efforts to isolate Moscow over the war in Ukraine.
