State Dept Amends Policy on Arms Exports to Vietnam

Department of the statesThe State Department has amended the policy that regulates exports of defense articles and services to Vietnam.

The department said in a Monday Federal Register notice that arms exports to Vietnam “may be authorized on a case-by-case basis” if it bolsters “maritime security and domain awareness.”

The State Department also said the rule takes effect upon publication as the department deemed it “unnecessary” to conduct notice and public procedure on the amendment.

Vietnam was subject to an arms embargo that started in 1984.
