HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam opposes all activities that violate its sovereignty as well as militarise and threaten peace, stability, security, safety and freedom of navigation and overflight in the East Sea (South China Sea). 

The statement was made yesterday by Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lê Hải Bình while answering reporters’ question on Việt Nam’s response to new satellite images of the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) which show that China appears to have installed weapons on seven of its artificial islands built in the East Sea. 

“Việt Nam is extremely worried about this imagery,” he stressed, affirming the country has sufficient legal foundation and historical evidence proving its sovereignty over Hoàng Sa (Paracel) and Trường Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes. – VNS
