Viet Nam affirms sovereignty over Truong Sa, Hoang Sa
The same day, the Taiwan Central News Agency (CNA) reported that Taiwan sent a delegation of young scholars of Cheng Gong University to visit the island.
“Activities of parties in Truong Sa archipelago without Viet Nam’s permission violate Viet Nam’s sovereignty and international laws, especially the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, go against the spirit of the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the East Sea (DOC) and cause tension in the East Sea,” the representative stressed.
The representative also asked Taiwan to stop similar activities and plans.
Earlier, in an article dated July 11 on the Feng Huang website (Hong Kong), member of Taiwan Kuomingtang Party Central Committee Qiu Yi said the waters around Tai Ping island (which is called Ba Binh by Viet Nam) belong to Taiwan.
Responding to reporters’ queries, the Foreign Ministry’s National Border Committee representative rejected the “wrong statement”.
