Vietnam's president dies after viral illness

Official media say Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang has died at age 61 due to illness on Friday Vietnam President Tran Dai Quang has died

His death is not likely to dramatically alter politics in a country where the communist state oversees nearly every facet of society - although the death of a sitting leader is rare.

President since 2016, Tran Dai Quang continued to exercise his official functions, in spite of her fatigue visible and its weight-loss.

Reports say he had been suffering from serious illness for several months and had received medical treatment overseas and in Vietnam.

A member of Quang's staff confirmed his "very sad" death to AFP.

In 2011, he was appointed Minister of Public Security, serving as Vietnam's de-facto top law enforcement officer.

Vietnam President Tran Dai Quang has died on Friday, state television and radio announced.

His last public appearance was at a Politburo meeting of the ruling Communist Party and a reception for a Chinese delegation on Wednesday.

He was from the northern province of Ninh Binh and was an advocate of growing the nation's private sector and developing closer ties with the U.S. He had a Vietnamese doctorate degree in law.

Born in 1956, Quang's career began in Vietnam's Ministry of Public Security, an agency heavily inspired by the Soviet Union's KGB, where he rose through the ranks in the 1970s and 1980s.

Along with Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Tran Dai Quang took over the leadership of the regime in 2016.

His time in office was also marked with a simmering conflict with China over the disputed South China Sea, a long-running dispute between the communist nations that has escalated several times in the past.
