Remarks by MOFA Spokesperson on China’s bomber aircraft exercising in Hoang Sa archipelago


On May 21st, 2018, in response to media’s question on China’s bomber aircraft exercising in Hoang Sa archipelago, MOFA Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang stated:

"Viet Nam has full legal grounds and historical evidence to affirm its sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos in accordance with international law.

China’s deployment of bomber aircrafts conducting take-off and landing drills in Hoang Sa seriously violates Viet Nam’s sovereignty over the islands, runs counter to the Agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of maritime issues between Viet Nam – China, violates the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC), hampers the negotiation between ASEAN and China on a Code of Conduct in the East Sea (COC), increases tension and instability in the region, and is not conducive to the maintenance of peace, stability and cooperation in the East Sea.

Viet Nam requests that China put an end to the aforementioned activities immediately, stop militarization, respect Viet Nam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa, observe the Agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of maritime issues between Viet Nam – China, the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC), and facilitate a favorable environment for the maintenance of peace, stability and cooperation in the region./."
