The government will report on recent developments in the East Sea (internationally known as the South China Sea), including China’s illegal construction projects on the Truong Sa (Spratly) Islands, at an upcoming National Assembly session.
The NA will meet from October 19 to November 28 to discuss the various issues.
Among the items on the agenda, will be reports on East Sea developments, particularly China’s illegal construction of artificial isles in Vietnam’s Truong Sa, and the presence of foreign workers, particularly Chinese workers, in Vietnam.
China recently dredged channels near Vietnam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) Islands and has announced plans to build lighthouses on five islands in the East Sea, at least two of which will go up in Vietnamese waters.
It is also expanding islets in the Truong Sa archipelago into artificial islands.
