Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry has reiterated its demand that Monsanto and other U.S. firms compensate Vietnamese Agent Orange victims.

The call comes after a San Francisco jury on August 10 ordered Monsanto to pay nearly $290 million in punitive and compensatory damages to Dewayne Johnson, a cancer patient whose terminal illness was allegedly caused by glyphosate in the company’s weed killer product.
