U.S. transfers boats to Vietnam for South China Sea patrol

The United States is supplying Vietnam with six Metal Shark patrol boats, a week ahead of a summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and the Vietnamese prime minister.


U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius officially handed over the 45-foot patrol boats that could be used in the country's maritime law enforcement, search and humanitarian assistance operations, according to the U.S. embassy in Hanoi.

"Vietnam's future prosperity depends upon a stable and peaceful maritime environment. The United States and the rest of the international community also benefit from regional stability, which is why we are here today, and it is why we are very pleased to be working together with the Vietnam Coast Guard," Osius said Tuesday.
