Vietnam demands Taiwan to cancel illegal drills in Truong Sa’s waters

Vietnam resolutely opposes and demands Taiwan (China) to cancel its live-fire exercises in the waters around Ba Binh island that belongs to Vietnam's Truong Sa (Spratly), Vietnamese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang stated on December 2.

Answering reporters’ query on Vietnam’s response to the act Taiwan had announced earlier, Hang said Taiwan’s move seriously violates Vietnam’s territorial sovereignty over Truong Sa; threatens peace, stability, safety and security of navigation; causes tensions; and complicates the situation in the East Sea.

The official added that Vietnam demands Taiwan not to repeat the act in the future.
