Responding to reporters’ queries on Vietnam’s reaction to Taiwan’s live-fire exercise in Ba Binh waters, Binh declared that the move “seriously violates Vietnam’s sovereignty over Truong Sa archipelago.”

“It also threatens peace, stability and maritime safety and security in the East Sea, while elevating tension and complicating the situation in the waters,” he said.

The spokesperson reiterated that Vietnam has all sufficient historical evidence and legal foundation proving the country’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa archipelagoes./.
