An in-depth analysis of how the South China Sea dispute has led to a growing convergence of strategic interests between Vietnam and the United States from 2003 to the present. This paper begins with a brief overview of the evolution of bilateral relations from 2003 to 2007. It examines similarities and differences in national interests with respect to the South China Sea and "the China factor," The paper also examines U.S.-=Vietnam interaction in multilateral settings. Finally, the paper enumerates where strategic interests converge but are not congruent.
