Vietnam objects to China’s air route to Hoang Sa (Paracels)

Saturday, December 24, 2016, 08:54 GMT+7

China’s launch of a civilian air service to an island in Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago in the East Vietnam Sea seriously violate Vietnam’s sovereignty over the archipelago, the Vietnamese foreign ministry spokesperson said on Friday.

On Thursday, China announced the inauguration of regular air route to the airport in Phu Lam on Hoang Sa archipelago, an activity Vietnam strongly objects to, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Friday.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Le Hai Binh underlined 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 pressed.
