US President Barack Obama has announced the US is fully lifting its embargo on sales of lethal weapons to Vietnam, its one-time enemy. Speaking during a visit to Vietnam and talks with President Tran Dai Quang, Mr Obama said, the move removed a lingering vestige of the Cold War. Experts say, the US is trying to bolster its relationship with its Pacific allies, as China asserts territorial claims. But Mr



Obama said, the embargo decision was not related to US policy on China. 
Vietnam is one of several countries in the region involved in maritime disputes with China. White House officials had indicated the arms ban, in force since 1984, would be lifted only if human rights in Vietnam improved. Vietnam had been arguing for an end to the embargo, which was partially lifted in 2014.
