A poster exhibition is underway in Ninh Kieu port, the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, to improve locals’ knowledge about Vietnam’s border and seas and islands.

The display, beginning on August 19, features more than 60 posters and ancient maps affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over its seas and islands, including Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos.

The exhibits also depict the will of Vietnamese fishermen and law enforcement forces to protect the fatherland’s sovereignty.

Director of the municipal Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Tran Viet Phuong said the event is to raise public awareness of border issues and promote patriotism.

The exhibition will run through August 25.-VNA
