VN opposes Taiwan’s live-fire exercises in Ba Binh Island

Chinese Taiwan's repeated launch of live-fire exercises in the waters area around Ba Binh Island that belongs to Viet Nam's Truong Sa archipelago, seriously violates Viet Nam's territorial sovereignty, threatens peace, stability, security, and safety of navigation, as well as causes tensions and complicates the situation in the East Sea.

Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang made that statement on August 24 in reply to reporters' query on Viet Nam's reaction to the Taiwanese action.

Viet Nam has full historical evidence and legal grounds to prove its sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos, she added.

Once again, Viet Nam resolutely opposes and demands Taiwan to not repeat similar activities, she asserted.
