President Bush and other leaders gathering in Vietnam this week must urge political reform and avoid handing Hanoi's communist government a propaganda coup, exile activists said Thursday.Ah Yes, now we get it...
Bush, the second U.S. president to visit post-war Vietnam, was due to fly into Hanoi Friday for the annual Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.
Vietnam exiles who have set up political parties among the 1.2 million U.S. residents of Vietnamese descent said they were apprehensive that the APEC summit and recent gestures by Washington would bolster the government but not advance political liberalization in the one-party state.
“It appears that the Vietnamese government is gaining a lot while giving up very little,” said Diem Do, chairman of the Vietnam Reform Party, a California-based group with chapters in Europe and Asia and supporters within Vietnam.
