TOKYO -- Vietnam is mulling which sections of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement can be renegotiated after the withdrawal of the U.S., Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said in an interview with the Nikkei Asian Review on Monday.

"Vietnam has assigned the minister in charge of trade to discuss with other members [of the TPP] on the options for the way forward," he said on the sidelines of the annual Future of Asia conference in Tokyo. The goal, he added, is to find "a way to balance and harmonize the interests of the signatories."
