 President Truong Tan Sang statement at his meeting with U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack in Washington D. C on Wednesday, the first working day of his 3-day visit to the United States.
The future Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) must take into account the differences in the development levels of member countries, the Vietnamese leader emphasized.
Sang also asked the United States to remove any barriers preventing Vietnamese goods from entering the country, reported the newspaper.
Cases of price dumping had negatively affected millions of Vietnamese farmers and the country's efforts in poverty reduction. The United States should soon recognize Vietnam's market economy status, state-run Vietnam News reported, quoting Sang's proposal at the meeting.
Vietnamese Ambassador to the United States Nguyen Quoc Cuong who said ahead of the President's departure that a new framework on the Vietnam-U.S. partnership is expected to reach during the President's U.S. visit.
"Nearly one decade has passed since the two nations established the current framework of constructive, friendly partnership and multi-faceted cooperation on the basis of equality, mutual respect and benefit," said the ambassador.
President Sang's trip is the second official visit made by a Vietnamese head of state in nearly two decades since the normalization of ties with the United States, and the first exchange of high-level delegation in five years, Vietnam News reported, adding that the visit comes at a time when the two nations are diversifying their relations in the drive for development.
Sang's visit is made on July 24-26 at the invitation of President Barack Obama.
Since 2005, the United States has become Vietnam's largest export market. Two-way trade turnover has increased continually in recent years. As of May this year, it reached over 11 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 16 percent year on year

Moscow cannot extradite Snowden:

25072013
In response U.S. Ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul request to hand over Snowden. Russia could not extradite fugitive U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden under any circumstances, head of the Presidential Human Rights Council said Thursday.
“The extradition is impossible,” Interfax news agency quoted Mikhail Fedotov as saying.
Fedotov said a person who has asked for political asylum cannot be extradited in line with international law. In addition, from a legal point of view, Russia had nothing to do with the U.S. refuge-seeker, he said.
“The problem is that, although Snowden is physically in Russian territory, legally he is not here. While he is in an airport’s transit zone, he hasn’t crossed Russia’s borders. So Russia cannot extradite him or do anything at all with him,” Fedotov said.
Meanwhile, Fedotov said Russia would not violate international law in the situation he described as a dead-end.
“We can do nothing to satisfy our U.S. partners even if we wanted,” he said.
Earlier Thursday, U.S. Ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul said Washington had asked Russia not to “extradite” Snowden but to “hand him over” to U.S. authorities. Media agencies

Dinosaur tail found in desert in northern Mexico

25072013

A team of paleontologists has discovered the fossilized remains of a dinosaur tail in a desert in northern Mexico.
The team said five -meter long tail has fifty connected vertebrae and is completely intact.
Fossilized bones believed to be the dinosaur’s hips were also found near the tail.The fossilized tail is the first ever found in Mexico.
The researchers say further study will be needed to determine what type of dinosaur it is. But they say it could very well be the giant plant-eating hadrosaur, which lived in the latter Cretaceous period, about 74 million to 80 million years ago.
A researcher says it is rare that such a well-preserved dinosaur fossil is found.Media agencies
