The world map published by the US National Geographic Society is wrong with a note of ‘Paracel Is. China ’ in the Hoang Sa archipelago area of Vietnam , Vietnamese foreign ministry spokesperson said on Mar. 13.

Spokeswoman Nguyen Phuong Nga made the statement in reply to a reporter’s query about Vietnam ’s reaction to the National Geographic Society’s publication of a world map in which Vietnam ’s Hoang Sa archipelago is named ‘Paracel Is. China ’.

“We request that the National Geographic correct this mistake,” Nga said.

“ Vietnam has indisputable sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes,” the spokeswoman asserted./.
