HÀ NỘI — Visits by a number of Taiwanese officials to the Ba Bình (Itu Aba) feature area have seriously violated Việt Nam’s sovereignty over the Trường Sa (Spratly) archipelago, stated Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lê Hải Bình yesterday.

Responding to a reporter’s question on Việt Nam’s stance on the Taiwanese officials’ visits, the diplomat stressed that Việt Nam resolutely protests the visits and demands Taiwan not to repeat them and contribute to maintaining peace and stability in the East Sea.

“Việt Nam asserts its indisputable sovereignty over Hàng Sa (Paracel) and Trường Sa archipelagoes. All activities carried out by foreign sides in these areas without Việt Nam’s permission are illegal,” stated the spokesperson. — VNS
