In the conclusion of his conversation with President Bush, Nguyen Minh Triet mentioned the Vietnamese-American community:
And on this occasion, I also would like to extend my warmest greetings to my fellowman living in the United States. And Vietnamese Americans are part and parcel of the Vietnamese nation. And it is my desire to see them succeed, and hope they will continue to serve as a bridge of friendship between our two countries.
Did he mean for his fellowmen to continue to pour dollars into Viet Nam? Quite a clever guy.
