US Vice-President Kamala Harris may visit Singapore, Vietnam in August: Sources

United States' Indian-origin Vice President Kamala Harris could travel to Vietnam and Singapore in August, even though details of the trip are not final yet, a source said yesterday.

The coronavirus pandemic is likely to be on Harris' agenda, the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Harris recently visited Mexico and Guatemala with the aim of lowering migration from the region. During her trip, she focused on issues such as economic development, food insecurity and women's issues.

Earlier, Harris visited a border patrol facility near the US-Mexico border and urged a focus on children and practical solutions to migration, in a trip meant to blunt Republican criticism of White House immigration policies. 

The visit, her first since becoming vice president five months ago, came amid a rise in migrants caught crossing the border, which has sparked outrage from Republicans, who favour the stricter immigration policies implemented by former president Donald Trump.
