The Prime Minister has recently approved a plan to organise exhibitions on the historical and legal evidence of Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos from 2015 to 2017.

Accordingly, the exhibitions will be held in 48 provinces and cities nationwide, including 18 coastal and 14 border provinces and cities, and four foreign countries, namely France, Russia, the US and the Czech Republic.

The displays will also be presented to military units, such as the High Command of the capital city Hanoi, and the Vietnam Police High Command.

The historical and legal evidence will also be published in printed materials, films and documentaries.

The exhibitions aim to communicate the sovereignty of Vietnam over the two archipelagos through documents, images and objects, while affirming the country’s stance and increasing the responsibilities of people and overseas Vietnamese in protecting Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty.-VNA
