Remarks by MOFA Spokesperson Le Hai Binh on China's construction of helicopter base on Duncan Island and deployment of surface-to-air missile on Woody Island
(20/02/2016)

Answering reporters’ querry on Viet Nam’s reaction to the information reported by a number of foreign news agencies that China has been building a helicopter base on Duncan island and depolying HQ-9 surface-to-air missile on Woody island of Viet Nam’s Paracel Archipelago, on 19th February 2016, MOFA spokesman Le Hai Binh stressed:

“Viet Nam is deeply concerned about the above-mentioned actions of China. These actions seriously infringe Viet Nam’s sovereignty over the Paracel Archipelago, threaten the regional peace and stability as well as security, safety and freedom of navigation and overflight in the East Sea. Viet Nam asks China to immediately stop such erroneous actions.

On 19 February 2016, representatives of the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry met with representatives of the Chinese Embassy in Ha Noi to hand over a diplomatic note of objection to China’s actions violating Viet Nam’s sovereignty over the Paracel Archipelago. On the same day, the Permanent Mission of Viet Nam to the United Nations also sent a diplomatic note to the United Nations Secretary-General, requesting the diplomatic note to the China’s Embassy in Ha Noi to be officially circulated”./.
