Hang reiterated that Viet Nam has sufficient historical and legal evidence affirming its sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagoes in accordance with international law.

As a littoral country and a signatory of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), Viet Nam has sovereignty, sovereign right and jurisdiction over its waters as defined in the UNCLOS and enjoys other legitimate rights and interests at sea in accordance with the provisions of the UNCLOS, said the Spokesperson.

Given the current regional and global context, Viet Nam demands China not further complicate the situation in the East Sea, she stressed./.
