美国国防部长马蒂斯今天在结束对越南首都河内的访问时表示,美国和越南是有着前瞻性关系的“志同道合的伙伴”。 马蒂斯和越南国防部长吴春历宣布会议今天举行会议讨论地区安全问题。他还会见了越南总统和共产党总书记。 

马蒂斯在离开越南后向前往檀香山的记者说:“这是正常的协调,协作和磋商,因为我们正在与越南建立关系,并以此为出发点。 他说,美国和越南在相互尊重和共同利益的基础上分享价值,包括航行自由,尊重国际法和承认国家主权。 

 马蒂斯说:“我们终于在最后确定美国航空母舰今年春天可能访问越南的细节。五角大楼首席发言人达纳·怀特(Dana W. White)说,两位国防部长同意在3月份航空母舰卡尔·文森(Carl Vinson)访问岘港。

加强美越防务合作 

两国领导人在会谈中承诺,将根据十月份商定的三年行动计划,加强防务合作,重点是海上安全,人道主义援助和救灾以及维和行动。 她还补充说,马蒂斯和吴春历还注意到最近在合作人道主义和医疗储存倡议和海岸警卫队合作方面取得的进展,其中包括前美国海岸警卫队在十二月份在越南的到来。

怀特说,马蒂斯强调了2018年国防战略,重申美国承诺与越南等合作伙伴一道,在自由开放的印度太平洋地区维持基于规则的秩序。 怀特说,马蒂斯还表示感谢越南对河内国防部/ MIA会计机构代表团的密切支持,因为这是为了收回在战争中失踪的美国人员。怀特补充说,秘书致力于与越南共同解决战争遗留问题。  

檀香山会见韩国国防部长

马蒂斯说,他将在夏威夷与美国太平洋司令部司令海军上将哈里斯·哈里斯以及韩国国防部长宋永谟会面。 马蒂斯说,美国和韩国有着“铁血联盟”。他说,根据三个一致的联合国安理会有关北韩的决议,讨论的内容应包括朝鲜半岛无核化的努力。 

马蒂斯强调了朝鲜问题上的外交努力,指出他最近在不列颠哥伦比亚省温哥华举行了朝鲜半岛安全与稳定外长会议。 他说:“我们将继续坚持这一路线,并提供可信的军事选择,以便外交官可以从一个实力和说服的立场发言。”
Mattis Calls U.S., Vietnam ‘Like-Minded Partners’

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2018 — The United States and Vietnam are “like-minded partners” that have a forward-looking relationship, Defense Secretary James N. Mattis said today as he concluded a visit to the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.

Mattis and Vietnamese Defense Minister Ngo Xuan Lich met today to discuss regional security issues. The secretary said he also met with the president of Vietnam and the general secretary of the Communist Party there.

“This is the normal coordination, collaboration, consultation, as we work out a relationship with Vietnam, and leaving things in the past as our starting point,” Mattis told reporters traveling with him en route to Honolulu after leaving Vietnam.

He said the United States and Vietnam share values based on mutual respect and common interests, including freedom of navigation, respect for international law, and recognition of national sovereignty.

“We're finally finalizing details on the possible visit of U.S. carriers going to Vietnam sometime this spring,” Mattis said. Chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana W. White said Mattis and Lich agreed to work toward a visit by the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson to Da Nang in March.

Enhancing U.S.-Vietnam Defense Cooperation

At the meeting, the two leaders committed to enhance defense cooperation based on a three-year plan of action agreed upon in October, with a focus on maritime security, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, as well as peacekeeping operations, White said.

Mattis and Lich also noted recent progress on the Cooperative Humanitarian and Medical Storage Initiative and robust Coast Guard cooperation, including the arrival of a former U.S. Coast Guard cutter in Vietnam in December, she added.

Mattis highlighted the 2018 National Defense Strategy, which reaffirms the U.S. commitment to work with partners such as Vietnam to sustain the rules-based order in a free and open Indo-Pacific region, White said.

Mattis also expressed appreciation for Vietnam's close support to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency mission in Hanoi, White said, as it works to recover U.S. personnel missing from the war. The secretary is committed to working with Vietnam to address remaining legacy of war issues, White added.

Honolulu Meeting with South Korean Counterpart

Mattis said he will meet in Hawaii with the commander of U.S. Pacific Command, Navy Adm. Harry Harris, as well as with South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo.

The U.S. and South Korea have an “ironclad alliance,” Mattis said. Discussions are to include denuclearization efforts on the Korean Peninsula, in light of three unanimous United Nations Security Council resolutions on North Korea, he said.

The secretary highlighted diplomatic efforts on the North Korean issue, noting he was recently in Vancouver, British Columbia, for the Foreign Ministers’ Meeting on Security and Stability of the Korean Peninsula.

“We'll continue to hold the line and provide credible military options so the diplomats can speak from a position of strength and persuasion,” he said.
