Vietnam affirms its sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes.
So said Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Luong Thanh Nghi at a regular
press briefing in Hanoi on March 7 as he answered reporters’ queries
regarding Vietnam ’s response to the recent Chinese sea patrol in the
East Sea , including the country’s two archipelagoes.
All actions in the region that take place without Vietnam ’s
permission are violations of its sovereignty which the country
resolutely opposes, the official added.-VNA
