VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/Asia News Network): Five years ago, then President Bounnhang Vorachit and his visiting US counterpart Barack Obama agreed to elevate bilateral relations into a full Comprehensive Partnership.

The elevated ties have demonstrated that both sides of the partnership are determined to leave behind a painful history and choose to grow together. The partnership has guided and strengthened Lao-US relations for the past five years, and will continue well into the future.
