- Story Text: U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with Vietnamese Prime Nguyen Xuan Phuc at the State Department in Washington on Wednesday (May 31).
Trade and security are expected to dominate talks between Tillerson and Phuc.
The trade issue has become a potential irritant in a relationship where Washington and Hanoi have stepped up security cooperation in recent years given shared concerns about China's increasingly assertive behavior in East Asia.
Phuc will meet with U.S. President Donald Trump later on Wednesday.
