(MOFA) - Answering reporters' questions on Viet Nam's response to the US Navy’s FONOP on 30 January 2016 within 12 nautical miles of Tri Ton Island in the Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago, on 31 January 2016, MOFA Spokesperson Le Hai Binh stated:

Once again, we reaffirm the indisputable sovereignty of Viet Nam over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) as well as the Truong Sa archipelagos. As a State Party to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) 1982, Viet Nam respects the right of innocent passage through the territorial sea conducted in accordance with relevant rules of international law, in particular the UNCLOS (Article 17). We request all countries to make positive and practical contribution to maintaining peace and stability in the East Sea (South China Sea) and to respect international law.”
