Nearly 200 young people from different regions across Vietnam will take part in a trip to the Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago and the marine defence platform DK1 from May 28 to June 6.

The event is expected to help the youth understand more about the lives of soldiers and people in the Truong Sa island district of central Khanh Hoa province, as well as those performing their duties on the platform.

The journey will also strengthen their determination to safeguard the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

More than 2 billion VND (94,000 USD) has to date been collected for a fundraising campaign in support for Truong Sa soldiers and people.

The trip will start from Cat Lai port, Ho Chi Minh City.-VNA
