The spokesperson made the statement in response to China’s inauguration of a civilian air route to the airport in Phu Lam on Hoang Sa archipelago on December 22.

Binh stressed that Vietnam has full legal foundations and historical evidence to assert its sovereignty of Hoang Sa and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes.

“Vietnam resolutely protests China’s above-mentioned actions, and demands that China immediately end actions violating Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa archipelago”, Binh stated.
