Vietnam praises deceased Senator McCain
hanoi - The Vietnamese Foreign Minister has extensively praised the late American senator John McCain. Pham Binh Minh wrote in a condolence register in the US Embassy in Hanoi that McCain took the lead in 'healing the war wounds.'
The minister thanked McCain for his role in normalizing the relationship between the US and Vietnam. The American sat there during the Vietnam War in the infamous Hoa Lo prison ('Hanoi Hilton'). He was captured in 1967 after his plane was shot down. At the site of that crash is now a memorial, where flowers have been deposited in recent days.
In other countries too, the death of the 81-year-old senator was sadly replied. French President Emmanuel Macron called the Republican 'a true American hero, whose voice will be missed. 'The British Prime Minister Theresa May stated that McCain was the embodiment of the ideal that' service is more important than self-interest. '
