SE Asia Stocks-Up as Trump's China optimism mutes trade war fears
* Asia shares higher, U.S. stock futures up 0.8 percent
* Vietnam touches record closing high
* Singapore, Malaysia indexes gain for third straight session
By Nicole Pinto
April 9 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Monday, tracking a rally in broader Asian shares and upbeat U.S. stock futures that rose after U.S. President Donald Trump claimed that China would take down its trade barriers, soothing fears of a tariff war.
China, however, said that Washington was to blame for trade frictions, repeating that it was impossible to negotiate under "current circumstances". Investors are now waiting for a speech by Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Boao Forum on Tuesday.
Asia shares ex-Japan rose 0.6 percent, while the U.S. S&P 500 e-Mini futures ESc1 climbed 0.8 percent.
In Southeast Asia, Vietnam touched a record closing high, led by financials and real estate stocks.
Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade CTG.HM jumped 5.6 percent, while Vingroup JSC VIC.HM climbed 1.9 percent, both hitting record closing highs.
Indonesian shares .JKSE rose 1.2 percent, with Telekomunikasi Indonesia TLKM.JK gaining 3.3 percent and
mining contractor United Tractors UNTR.JK rising 2.2 percent.
The Thai index .SETI advanced 0.7 percent, with shares of oil and gas company PTT PCL PTT.BK up 1.5 percent and Siam Cement PCL SCC.BK climbing 2.1 percent.
Thailand's economy is expected to grow 4.1 percent this year, up from a forecast 3.6 percent, as the recovery is
broadening, the World Bank said on Monday.
The country's monetary policy still needs to remain accommodative for some time until the economic recovery has
become clear and broad-based, the central bank governor said.
Malaysian shares .KSLE ended 0.7 percent higher, their third session of gains, underpinned by higher material stocks.
Press Metal Aluminium Holdings Bhd PMET.KL surged 13.8 percent, while Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd PCGB.KL jumped 3.4 percent.
Singapore shares .STI rose for a third straight session, led by gains in financials.
The Philippine stock market .PSI was closed for a holiday.
