China Expresses ‘Unhappiness’ Over US Aircraft Carrier in Vietnam

For the first time since the end of the Vietnam War in 1975, a US aircraft carrier will be docking in a Vietnamese port - and China, a rival to both nations, is unhappy.

The USS Carl Vinson and a two-ship escort docked in the Vietnamese port of Da Nang on Monday. Its 5,000-sailor complement will participate in technical exchanges and sports matches with the Vietnamese military as well as humanitarian work at orphanages and a center for victims of Agent Orange, a carcinogenic herbicide sprayed over 12,000 square miles of Vietnamese land during the war.

Hanoi has estimated that 3 million Vietnamese people suffered adverse health effects such as hernias and extra fingers and toes from their exposure to Agent Orange, although the US government has challenged that figure.
