BANGKOK, Thailand — Former Secretary of State Cyrus R. Vance conferred with Vietnamese leaders on a six-day visit to Hanoi, Vietnam's state radio said Thursday.
Vance, who left Vietnam on Wednesday, met Premier Pham Van Dong, Central Committee Secretary Le Duc Tho and Foreign Minister Nguyen Co Thach, the radio said.
The radio, monitored in Bangkok, gave no details of their talks. Vance was secretary of state under President Jimmy Carter. Washington does not have diplomatic relations with Hanoi. It has refused to normalize ties until Vietnam withdraws its troops from Cambodia and accounts for about 2,400 Americans missing since the Vietnam War.
