The Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh. — File Photo HA NOI (VNS) — China’s activities in the so-called Sansha city have no legal foundation and do not change the fact that the Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago belongs to Viet Nam, according to Foreign Ministry spokesman Le Hai Binh.

Binh made the remark at the Ministry’s regular press conference yesterday while responding to reporters’ queries on Viet Nam’s response to information in the Chinese People’s Daily newspaper that the Sansha city government has been installing high-speed wireless broadcasting equipment on inhabited islands since October 1.

“Viet Nam has rejected the so-called Sansha city many times,” he said. “Under any form or for whatever purpose, China’s activities in the city have no legal foundation and do not change the fact that Hoang Sa archipelago belongs to Viet Nam.”

Regarding Viet Nam’s response to the Filipino Diplomat newspaper’s comment that China is virtually implementing the Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the East Sea, Binh said all activities of the involved parties in the East Sea must respect the sovereignty and jurisdiction of relevant countries.
