Vietnam wants China to end violations, respecting Vietnamese waters and showing goodwill in enforcing the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) 1982, the Declaration on the Conduct of the Parties in the South China Sea (DOC), and refrain from complicating the situation and troubling the negotiations of the Code of Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea (COC), Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang of Vietnam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said at a press conference.
In Whitsun Reef in the South China Sea, Philippine Coast Guard found more than 200 vessels since March 7.
Philippine Armed Forces chief, Gen. Cirilito Sobejana said the fleet remained near Grierson Reef on March 22.
Manila slammed China’s “provocative” deployment of more than 200 vessels in the South China Sea, asking for the ships to be recalled from the region.
Grierson Reef of Union Bank in Spratly Island is part of Vietnam’s Sinh Ton Commune in Truong Sa District of Khanh Hoa Province.
