The exhibition, co-organised by the Ministry of
Information and Communications and the Vietnam National University (VNU-HCM
city), features evidence affirming that Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa
(Spratly) archipelagos belong to Vietnam.
On show are documents, maps, images and items which
were published by Vietnamese and international scholars, asserting Vietnam’s
sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos.
Hoang Minh Phuong, an official from the ministry,
said Vietnam’s sea and islands are an inseparable part of the country,
adding the exhibition is part of activities to raise awareness and
responsibility of students and staff of the university in national
construction and defence.
He also highlighted that communication campaigns on
sea and islands over the time have greatly contributed to the country’s
sovereignty on the East Sea, especially over the two archipelagos.
The exhibition will run until September 13th./.
