Kamala Harris, the US Vice President has arrived in Vietnam from Singapore early on Wednesday after a report that another potential case of the Havana Syndrome was recorded, which caused a delay that lasted 3 hours, Fox News informed.
Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary stated that the case has yet to be confirmed and before the Harris flew on to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, a safety assessment was completed.
Once the assessment was done, a decision was made for the Vice President to proceed with her trip.
Kamala Harris began her trip on Friday and is on a short tour of Southeast Asia.
While in Singapore she harshly criticized China, highlighting the US support for a free Indo-Pacific region. Harris also condemned the aggression in this region by the communist regime Beijing.
Some officials of the US Intelligence are on the thought that the Havan Syndrome might be caused with intent. This syndrome has already sickened around 200 US officials, Reuters reports.
The flight delay of the VP arrives less than one week after there were reports that several US officials a the Berlin’s US embassy sought treatment for symptoms that resemble that syndrome.
The Wall Street Journal informed that those who were affected were diplomats and officers that worked on issues related to Russia including gas exports, political interference, and cybersecurity.
Russia has rejected all accusations that it is behind these occurrences.
As of 2016, CIA and State Department officials in Cuba have first complained about having some strange symptoms like confusion, nausea, and migraines.
Harris has entered Vietnam right after China requested an impromptu meeting between the Chinese Ambassador Xiong Bo and the Vietnamese Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.
The Government of Vietnam issued a statement the Prime Minister asserted that the country complies to the self-reliant, multilateral, independent, and diverse foreign policy and stated that it has been a very responsible part of the international community.
