“Vietnam has sufficient historical evidence and legal basis to assert its sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos in accordance with international law. The nation always supports the peaceful settlement of territorial disputes on the basis of respect for international law, including the 1982 United Nation Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS),” the Deputy Spokesman said.

The ASEAN-China workshop on promoting cooperation in ensuring just and humane treatment of fishermen in the East Sea was held on November 4. The event gave a chance to Vietnam to convey a message to regional countries and other ASEAN member states which are seeking to protect the legitimate rights and interests of fishermen under the sovereignty and jurisdiction of their nations.
