MIA repatriation efforts ease US-Vietnam ties

Bilateral push to return bodies of fallen US soldiers seen as boost for economic and diplomatic relations.

    An ongoing bilateral campaign to return the bodies of US soldiers who died in the Vietnam conflict has been seen by some observers as essential to the growing relationship between the two countries.

    Officials have said that without such efforts, the current close economic ties between the US and Vietnam would not have been possible.
