At the meeting, Dung lauded the efforts of the VVA in cooperation and helping Vietnam search and repatriate the remains of dead or missing Vietnamese soldiers and stressed it is an activity of humanitarian significance, strengthening ties between Vietnam and the US.

Dung hoped the US side would continue providing information to ensure success in the efforts.
