The Ministry of Information and Communications and Son La province co-organized an exhibition of historical and legal evidence of Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos.
The exhibition aims to improve people’s understanding of Vietnam’s sovereignty over the two archipelagos and on awareness of defending the national sea and islands.
The exhibits, including many documents issued by the Vietnamese feudal regimes and from the French administration in Indochina in the 17th to early 20th century, affirm Vietnam exercising its sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos.
In particular, documents, maps, images and items made public by Vietnamese and international scholars are being presented in 3D format.
Addressing the event, Tran Thi Quoc Hien from the MIC underlined that sea and islands are inseparable parts of Vietnam. "The exhibition is part of the activities to raise awareness and responsibility of students and staff of the school in the safeguard of the country’s sea and islands sovereignty", she added.
The exhibition will last until July 1 at the Tay Bac University, the To Hieu High School, the Chieng Sinh High School, the Son La Ethnic Minority Boarding School. By Linh Bui
