Vietnam sovereignty exhibition opens in Bac Ninh

An exhibition of maps and documents affirming Vietnam ’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos is on in the northern province of Bac Ninh, reports Vietnamplus. On display are about 100 maps, documents and publications which are historical and legal evidence asserting the Vietnamese sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa since the 17th century.

The exhibition will contribute to affirming Vietnam’s firm stance on East Sea issues, strengthening solidarity and heightening the sense of responsibility among Vietnamese at home and abroad in the cause of safeguarding the nation’s waters and islands. The show also helps international friends, including the Chinese, understand the Vietnamese people’s aspiration for peace and stability in the region.

It will be also a chance for youngsters to understand more about the national history and raise their own voices for justice and peace.

Some Vietnam Coast Guard and Fisheries Resources Surveillance vessel models are displayed at the exhibition, which will run until August 15. Bac Ninh is the ninth province in the country that has hosted such an exhibition.
