HANOI, May 29 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will make a trip to Vietnam on June 4-6, according to a local media report on Monday.
The three-day visit following a trip to the United States by Vietnamese Defense Minister Pham Van Tra in 2003 aims to beef up the two countries' cooperative relations, the report said.
