Hanoi (People's Daily) - The USS Carl Vinson arrived at the Tien Sa port, Da Nang, Vietnam on Monday, the first time for a US carrier to do so since the end of Vietnam War in 1975, VnExpress reported.
The carrier was accompanied by the USS Lake Champlain, a guided missile cruiser, and the USS Wayne E. Meyer, a guided missile destroyer.
The two sides exchanged ideas on technical and cultural aspects, and the US sailors visited various communities in Vietnam, Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry said.
