    * 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.
