The minister thanked McCain for his role in the normalizing of the relationship between the U.S. and Vietnam. The American sat there during the Vietnam war in the infamous Hoa Lo prison (“Hanoi Hilton”). He was in 1967, was taken captive after his plane was shot down. In the place of that crash is now a memorial, where the last few days, flowers are laid out.
