HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says Asian territorial disputes should be resolved by international diplomacy.

Gates addressed students at Vietnam National University on Monday. He marveled at the friendly relations between the U.S. and Vietnam a generation after the Vietnam War.

Gates says such issues are best handled by several nations working together.
