HA NOI (VNS)— Viet Nam hopes that the US Government's current shutdown is only temporary and will not affect the two countries' relations, a Foreign Ministry spokesman has said.
At a press conference yesterday, spokesman Luong Thanh Nghi reported that once the shutdown is over the two countries will maintain their co-operative activities and exchanges.
The two countries held their sixth annual political-security-defence dialogue in Washington DC on Tuesday and their diplomatic representative offices are operating as usual, Nghi told the reporters.
"We hope the US Government will resume and stabilise its operations soon," he stated. — VNS
