Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang has said Vietnam rejects China’s unilateral decision on fishing ban in the East Sea from May 1 to August 16.

Foreign Ministry’s spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang.

As an East Sea coastal country and a member of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), Vietnam has sovereignty, sovereign right and jurisdiction over its waters as defined in the UNCLOS and enjoys other legitimate interests at sea in line with the UNCLOS’s regulations, she said.

Given the regional and global context at present, Vietnam asks China not to further complicate the situation in the East Sea, she added.
