Dak Nong (VNA) – Various documents, publications and maps, including those published by China, which prove Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes are on display at an exhibition in the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong.

According to the organising board, the four-day event is significant to raising public awareness of the responsibility in joining hands in protecting the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa, and affirming the country’s sovereignty over the archipelagoes through historical documents.

At the opening ceremony on September 20, the Ministry of Information and Communications presented all exhibits to Dak Nong province for displaying in seven districts until December 2016.

The provincial Department of Information and Communications has also planned to annotate the documents and maps in the languages of local ethnic minority groups such as M’Nong and Ede, thus bringing the exhibits to all locals.

Earlier the same day, the organising board also held a training course on sea and islands for nearly 300 trainees from local departments and agencies as well as local teachers.-VNA
