HÀ NỘI – A representative of the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs made contact with China on Wednesday and handed a diplomatic note opposing its military drills in Việt Nam’s Hoàng Sa (Paracel) archipelago area.

The news was announced by Spokeswoman for the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Lê Thị Thu Hằng the same day while answering reporters’ queries about China’s military drills in the area.

Việt Nam has sufficient legal grounds and historical evidence affirming its sovereignty over the Hoàng Sa and Trường Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes in line with international law, she said. 

“China’s military drills in Việt Nam’s Hoàng Sa archipelago have seriously violated Việt Nam’s sovereignty over the archipelago,” Hằng stressed. — VNS
