Viet Nam News – HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam requests that China immediately stop sending bombers to conduct drills in Việt Nam’s Hoàng Sa (Paracel) archipelago, said the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson, Lê Thị Thu Hằng.
Hằng made the statement in Hà Nội on Monday in response to a reporter’s question regarding the exercises, saying China’s dispatch of bombers to conduct take-off and landing drills in Hoàng Sa has seriously violated Việt Nam’s sovereignty over the archipelago.
