Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang died on Friday at the age of 61, state media reported.
Reports say he had been suffering from serious illness for several months and died at a military hospital in Vietnam's capital Hanoi.
His last public appearance was just two days ago on Wednesday at a meeting with visiting Chinese politicians in Hanoi, the reports added.
Quang -- whose role as president was largely ceremonial -- took office in April 2016. Before that, he had served as minister of public security.Last Mod: 21 Eylül 2018, 10:05
