Hai Phong (VNA) - An exhibition of historical evidence proving Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes opened on Cat Hai islands, the northern port city of Hai Phong on March 29.

On display are numerous documents and around 100 maps in Chinese, Nom (old Vietnamese writing using Chinese characters), French and modern Vietnamese issued by Vietnamese feudal states, the French authorities in Indochina, the Saigon administration and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

The documents affirm Vietnam’s sovereignty over these islands and reflect the country’s administrative management, as well as its exercise and protection of sovereignty over the archipelagoes.

The event aims to raise the public’s awareness, and encourage Vietnamese nationals to protect and affirm national territory.

The exhibition runs until April 1. All of the exhibits will be given to the city of Hai Phong.-VNA
