Khanh Hoa (VNA)
- Four ships carrying officers, soldiers, journalists as well as New Year gifts departed from Cam Ranh military port,   in the central province of Khanh Hoa, on January 6 for Truong Sa archipelago.

As scheduled, the ships will drop in 21 islands and 33 islets in the district, delivering gifts to people and soldiers stationed there on the occasion of the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet). 

As many as 105 reporters from media companies across the country were on board the ships.

Their writings about historical sites and daily life on the islands will contribute to affirming the sovereignty of Vietnam over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes, the country’s exclusive economic zone, continental shelf, and other sea and island areas.-VNA
