Vietnam slams Taiwan’s live fire drills on Spratly islands

VOV.VN - A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Vietnam has voiced Vietnam’s strong opposition to Taiwan’s live-fire drills around Ba Binh (Itu Aba) island of the Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.

Vietnam has sufficient legal and historical evidence to affirm its sovereignty over Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelagos in the East Sea in accordance with international law, spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang told media workers on June 11.

She stressed that Taiwan’s move seriously violates Vietnam’s territorial sovereignty over this archipelago that threatens peace, stability, safety, and security of navigation, causes tensions and complicates the situation in the East Sea.

Vietnam resolutely objects and requests Taiwan not to repeat similar actions in future, the spokesperson added.
