CAPTION ONLY: BRITISH OK AID DEAL FOR VIETNAM

British Foreign Secretary Douglas Hurd and Vietnamese Foreign Minister Nguyen Manh Cam toast after signing a record financial aid deal for Vietnam Thursday in Hanoi.

The package will encourage Vietnamese trade with British firms and improve Vietnam's infrastructure.
