Remarks at Center for a New American Security

Antony J. Blinken
Deputy Secretary of State
Washington, DC
June 26, 2015

“Last month, I visited Vietnam, Indonesia, and Myanmar – countries that are experiencing the benefits of economic and democratic progress.”

“Two things. One is there’s a clear path forward for the South China Sea, and that is for all of the claimants – because it’s not just China; it’s certainly true that other countries including Vietnam, including Malaysia, including the Philippines, are engaged in their own reclamation projects. ”

“We’ll have the general secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam coming to the United States to visit President Obama in just about 10 days’ time – the first visit by a general secretary in history – on the 20th anniversary of the restoration of relations. The relationship with Vietnam has moved to a very different place, and part of that has been actually energized by China’s actions.”
