VGP - An exhibit called “Viet Nam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelagoes – Historical and legal evidence” is taking place at a museum in Tuyen Quang province. 

The event is organized by the Ministry of Information and Communications and the Tuyen Quang Provincial People’s Committee.

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Information and Communications Hoang Vinh Bao affirmed Viet Nam’s consistent viewpoint on its sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes as well as its jurisdiction rights over waters and continental shelf in the East Sea in line with international law, including the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea. 

The display of materials and photos affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over two archipelagoes aimed to raise awareness of protecting the country’s sea and island sovereignty among officers, soldiers and people, he added.

The exhibition showcases documents, publications, items, and 100 maps collected by domestic and foreign researchers that confirm Viet Nam’s sovereignty over the two archipelagos, including transcribed versions of the original Chinese-Vietnamese and French documents published by Vietnamese feudal regimes, the French government in Indochina, and several western publications from the 17th to the 20th century.

In addition, documents of the Nguyen Dynasty regarding Viet Nam’s exploitation, management, establishment, and exercise of its sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa are also displayed.

The exhibition also features 65 maps certifying that the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagoes belong to Vietnam, published by Western nations since the 17th century.
It runs till September 30.
