Prague (VNA) – The Vietnamese Buddhists’ Association in Hungary recently held a requiem for martyrs who laid down to Vietnam’s sovereignty over its sea and islands.

Through the requiem, the association wanted to show that the Vietnamese community in Hungary love peace and object to China’s militarisation of the East Sea.

The requiem also explained to young people that the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos are integral parts of Vietnam and inviolable national sovereignty.

The Vietnamese community in Hungary currently numbers nearly 5,000 people, mainly living in Budapest.

China’s recent militarisation in the East Sea include its deployment of warplanes to Phu Lam (Woody) Island in the Hoang Sa archipelago and its construction of a high frequency radar facility in the Truong Sa archipelago.-VNA
