China asked to respect Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa

(VOVWORLD) - China’s announcement that it would conduct a live-fire drill in Vietnam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago is a serious violation of Vietnam’s sovereignty over the archipelago, threatening peace and stability in the region and in the East Sea, said Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang on Tuesday.

Hang said Vietnam strongly protests this move by China, and demands that China respect Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa Archipelago and stop threatening peace and stability in the region.

Vietnam once again resolves to safeguard its sovereignty and legitimate rights and interests in the East Sea through peaceful measures in line with international law, including the UN Charter and the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, said spokesperson Hang.
