Vietnam and the United States are actively arranging the visit by U.S. President Donald Trump to the Southeast Asian country in November, Le Thi Thu Hang, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said at a press meeting on Thursday.
“At a meeting between Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and President Donald Trump in May, the U.S. president affirmed he would visit Vietnam and attend the APEC 2017 summit [to be held in central city of Da Nang in November]. The two sides are actively preparing for the visit”, the spokesperson said.
According to international media, President Trump is expected to visit Japan for the first time as U.S. president before landing on the Philippines and Vietnam for regional summits. He will probably visit China on November 15-16.
In a recent interview with Dan Tri newspaper, U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius expressed strong hope that President Trump will visit Vietnam and attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit together with other leaders of 20 economies.  
The visit will be extremely important for Vietnam as well as Vietnam-U.S. relations, the ambassador added.
Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc made a U.S. tour late in May, during which the two countries reached consensus on a wide range of issues, including a call by a U.S. plane carrier to Vietnam for the first time next year.
After PM Phuc’s visit, Vietnamese Minister of Defense Ngo Xuan Lich and Hoang Binh Quan, head of the Communist Party of Vietnam’s External Relations Commission, visited Washington.
