The participants will also discuss the possibilities to push cooperation in the region.

Speaking at the workshop, President of the Diplomatic Academy of Viet Nam Dang Dinh Quy said although major storms are absent in the East Sea this year, undercurrents are still fierce, threatening the safety of one of the world’s most important shipping lines as well as the lives of millions of fishermen and stability, security and development of the whole region.

The East Sea is dealing with continuous complications, which likely make it a new hot spot.
