VIENTIANE, Laos — Secretary of State John F. Kerry arrived Sunday in Laos, where the United States is helping the government clear a countryside still littered with unexploded ordnance dating to the Vietnam War.
Kerry’s one-day stop for talks with senior officials marks a rare diplomatic visit. He is the third secretary of state in six decades to visit the tiny, landlocked country in Southeast Asia, with John Foster Dulles stopping in 1955 and Hillary Clinton in 2012.
