US VP Harris to visit Vietnam, Singapore: White House

Harris heads to the Southeast Asian nations "to strengthen relationships and expand economic cooperation with two critical Indo-Pacific partners of the United States," senior advisor Symone Sanders said in a statement.

Harris, an Asian-American whose mother was of Indian origin, will be the first U.S. vice president to visit Vietnam.

A schedule for the August trip has yet to be released.

U.S. Defense Secretary is visiting Southeast Asia this week.

Sanders said Washington has a "top priority to rebuild our global partnerships and keep our nation secure, and this upcoming visit continues that work -- deepening our engagement in Southeast Asia."

Harris will engage with the two countries' leaders on regional security, the global response to the pandemic, actions to address climate change, "and our joint efforts to promote a rules-based international order."
