HCM CITY (VNS) — A new exhibition of nearly 200 photographs and news reports, with the theme Young People Participate in Protecting Viet Nam's Sea and Island Sovereignty, is on display at the Youth Cultural House in District 1 in HCM City.
The highlights include photos, news reports and video clips about China's deep-water oil rig HYSY981, which was illegally placed in the country's waters.
The event also showcases old maps and a collection of administrative records that show the country's sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spartly) archipelagos.
"For people who have or have not once experienced the salty taste of Hoang Sa and Truong Sa, the photos and reports at the exhibition left a very strong impression. Through the event, they can learn lessons from the islands and soldiers and become more patriotic as well," said Captain Le Trung Thanh of the sea police ship CSB 4033.
The event, part of cultural activities to celebrate National Day, September 2, will run through September. — VNS
