Sovereignty is sacred

23/11/2015
Since September 2014 China has been massively implemented activities of building, renovation and construction the objects, which have been illegally occupied by China, in Spratly islands.
People from many provinces and cities in Vietnam such as Bac Lieu, Can Tho, Da Nang, Ha Noi, Hai Phong, Phu Yen... have expressed their anger to the China’s violations in the East Sea, especially the building artificial islands in some spots of Vietnam’s Spratly and Paracel Islands, illegal fishing in Vietnam’s sea or attacking vessels of Vietnamese fisherman.
People has demanded to have feasible and stronger solutions to maintain the independence and territorial integrity of the country; to enlist the help of the international community and public opinion to deal with the China’s activities.
People want the Government to finalize the legal procedures to sue China international court; to be more careful in foreign policies, especially in the relation with China.
Vietnamese people also suggest the Government to minimize the compromise policies to ensure the territorial integrity, national security and sovereignty; also to update the East Sea situation timely and completely, to promote the propaganda of the sea sovereignty... therefore we could raise the people’s awareness and the spirit of solidarity and determination to safeguard the sea sovereignty of the country.
In the relation with China, Vietnam affirms the stance and views regularly via a lot of dialogue channels, even at high-ranking levels and forums on border, territory between two countries, via diplomatic notes as well as direct exchange with the China Embassy in Hanoi.
Since the begin of 2015, the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry has contacted and exchanged 22 times with China’s Embassy, in which there were 7 contacts and 9 diplomatic notes to protest the China’s activities in the East Sea.
Vietnam has also been active to inform the other country and international forums about the East Sea situation, to explain the rightness of Vietnam and the international law’s violations of China to enlist the support of international community. A lot of leaders of foreign country have shared the concern of Vietnam, supported Vietnam in the East Sea issue, called upon sides to restrain, not to widen or increase the tension.
Recently, for the first time, the East Sea issue has been mentioned in the joint statement of the 48th ASEAN Ministerial Meeting. ASEAN has clearly understood the threats and seriousness of the issue and reached higher consensus among members of the group.
China is a big country, an important neighbor of Vietnam. Vietnam respects the stable maintenance and sustainable development of the friendship and comprehensive cooperation with China on the basis of equality, mutual respect for independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Since the normalization, in general, the relation between Vietnam and China has developed stably on many areas and brought benefits for two countries and people of each country. Two countries have solved two on three big problems on border delimitation including borders on land and in the Tonkin Gulf. There is only one big problem on the East Sea.
This is very important, relates to sacred sovereignty of the country. This also relates to politics, security, defense of Vietnam and relations between Vietnam and other countries in the region and powerful countries. If this problem is not solved properly, it would affect badly to peace, stability and development of our country, the region and even the world.
To solve the China’s violations, Vietnam is always persistent to peaceful means in the lines with the international law to maintain the relation with China and ensure the sovereignty of the country in the East Sea.
Therefore, we will develop the multifaceted relation with China and on the other hand we firmly determined to defend the sovereignty, territorial integrity and national security. /.
