School children in the central province of Quang Ngai will be taught about the history of the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos since the start of the 2012-2013 academic year.

The Director of the provincial Education and Training Department, Thai Van Dong, said on September 10 that the books are currently being printed.

The lessons confirm that Hoang Sa and Truong Sa are completely Vietnam’s sovereignty and that the Vietnamese people have established their sovereignty over the two archipelagoes since the Nguyen Dynasty, the evidence of which remains to this day.

With these lessons, the pupils will be more aware that Vietnam has complete sovereignty over the two archipelagoes.

The lessons will help educate them about the country’s tradition of national defence and make them realize that it is their responsibility to continue affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa and protecting the nation’s territory, including islands.-VNA
