Harris’s Trip to Vietnam Cleared Amid Safety Concerns
Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, said a security assessment had deemed it safe for Vice President Kamala Harris to travel to Vietnam after reports of a possible case of “Havana Syndrome,” a mysterious health condition, in Hanoi.
We, of course, take any reported incident of Havana Syndrome seriously, and while, and while this is not a confirmed case at this point in time, we take any reported incident — which was recent and was reported publicly, I will note — quite seriously. As a result, there was an assessment done of the safety of the vice president, and there was a decision made that she could continue to travel along with her staff. It was not a person traveling in her party or anything along those lines. Does the White House believe she was targeted or someone on her team may have been targeted? That is not an assessment that’s been made. It was an individual who was in country and it had been reported previously. Can you confirm that it was two embassy staffers? I don’t have any additional detail beyond that.
