A programme entitled “The homeland looked at from the sea” will be broadcasted live on June 8 to popularise the country’s sovereignty over its sea and islands.

The event will link Hanoi, the East Sea Park in the central city of Da Nang, and Ly Son island district in the central province of Quang Ngai.

Through stories and videos demonstrating Vietnam’s legitimate sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos and the national pride of the Vietnamese people, it will convey the message that each person will serve as a landmark of the country’s sovereignty.

The event will contribute to raising public awareness of the role, strategic position and great potential of Vietnam’s sea and islands. It will also help improve the awareness and responsibilities of each person in exploiting and protecting resources from the sea, thus promoting economic development and safeguarding the national sea and island sovereignty.-VNA
