HANOi, October 27, 2015-- It is exciting to join you this morning to announce the shared commitment to a new phase of our cooperation on support for persons with disabilities. You know well that this year Vietnam and the United States celebrate the 20th anniversary of the normalization of our diplomatic relations. During that period our governments have partnered for significant achievements in areas of economic growth and trade, health, education and war legacies. But our cooperation for persons with disabilities goes further back and represents perhaps the broadest set of aspirations shared by our peoples. In important ways it represents a key element of our past and future relations. For many it also represents an important part of our cooperation on war legacies.
