#Vietnam urges restraint amid maritime tensions with #China - Vietnamese President & Communist Party chief Nguyen Phu Trong called for restraint in the disputed #SouthChinaSea amid a tense months-long standoff between #Chinese and #Vietnamese ships uk.reuters.com/article/uk-vie…
“On the subject of foreign policy, including the East Sea issue, the General Secretary stressed the importance of maintaining a peaceful & stable environment & resolutely fighting to protect Vietnam’s independence, sovereignty & territorial integrity”.
The South China Sea is known as the East Sea in Vietnam.

Vietnam has good relations with China but should “never compromise” on its sovereignty and territorial integrity, VOV quoted Trong as saying.
On Sunday, Vietnam pulled DreamWorks’ animated film “Abominable” from cinemas over a scene featuring a map which shows China’s unilaterally declared “nine-dash line” in the South China Sea.
The U-shaped line is used on Chinese maps to illustrate its claims, including large swathes of Vietnam’s continental shelf, where it has awarded oil concessions.
