VietNamNet Bridge – A 15-member delegation of the Veterans for Peace (VFP) led by chairman of its chapter 160, Suel D.Jone, is visiting Vietnam from April 17 to May 1.
(DA NANG Vietnam) - At a meeting in Hanoi on April 18, Vice chairman of the Vietnam Union of Friendship Organisations (VUFO), Nguyen Van Kien expressed his hope that the VFP will further cooperate with the VUFO and the Vietnam-US Association in promoting the friendship between the two countries and dealing with humanitarian and other post-war issues.
Suel said the visit provided a good chance for VFP members to return to Vietnam to see drastic changes in the country.
Some war veterans said they are very happy and willing to contribute to dealing with issues related to Agent Orange (AO) and unexplored ordnance victims.
During their stay in Vietnam, the delegation will work with the Associations for Victims of AO/dioxin in Hanoi, Danang, Quang Tri and Thua Thien-Hue provinces and meet with Vietnam war veterans in Ho Chi Minh City.
