VGP - Viet Nam requests China to respect its sovereignty and take no actions that escalate tensions and complicate the situation, affecting peace and stability in the East Sea and the region, as well as efforts of countries in negotiations of a Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC), spokeswoman of the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Le Thi Thu Hang said.
Hang made the remarks at the ministry’s regular press conference in Ha Noi on March 26, while answering reporters’ queries regarding Viet Nam’s response to Chinese media’s information about China’s launch of two research stations on Fiery Cross and Subi Reefs of Viet Nam's Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.

She reiterated that Viet Nam has sufficient legal grounds and historical evidence testifying its sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa archipelagos in line with international law.

Therefore, all activities on those islands must have Vietnam’s permission, the spokesperson stressed. - VNA
