Amid the current regional and international context, Vietnam urges parties not to take any actions that would further complicate the situation in the East Vietnam Sea, the foreign ministry's spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang said Thursday.

Hang made the statement at the ministry’s regular press conference on Thursday while answering reporters’ queries about the information that Chinese navy surveillance aircraft KJ-500 and KQ-200 appeared on Da Chu Thap (Fiery Cross Reef) in Vietnam’s Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.

Regarding the information, she reiterated that Vietnam has sufficient historical evidence and legal basis to assert its sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa archipelagoes in accordance with international law.

“All activities of the parties in these two archipelagos without the permission of Vietnam are null and void”, the spokesperson affirmed.
