The talks were held in Washington DC by the US Institute of Peace (USIP) and the Vietnamese Embassy in the United States.

In his introductory speech, Vice President of the Institute William Taylor said that 50 years on, this is a great opportunity for all sides to reflect on history and evaluate the successes and limitations of past conflict prevention efforts, from which lessons can be learned for the future.

Ambassador Nguyen Quoc Dung said the Agreement closed a sad chapter in the history of Vietnam-US relations and started a long process towards reconciliation,  mutual understanding, normalization of relations in 1995 and establishment of a Comprehensive Partnership in 2013.

The talk was part of the US Institute of Peace’s Vietnam War legacy and reconciliation initiative.
