Vietnam warns China after survey ship sabotaged


HANOI, Vietnam—Vietnam has warned China to respect its sovereignty after accusing Chinese ships of sabotaging a Vietnamese survey vessel in the disputed West Philippine Sea.

A Foreign Ministry statement late Tuesday said the incident last week and two other administrative measures by China recently related to its claims in the sea, also known as South China Sea, had “complicated” the dispute.

China believes most of the West Philippine Sea is its own, overlapping with claims of Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Taiwan in parts of the gas- and oil-rich region.

Vietnam said Friday that two Chinese ships intentionally cut the cables of a seismic ship off the central coast.

The foreign ministry said China must respect Vietnam’s sovereignty and “immediately stop all this wrong actions and make sure they are not repeated.”

    China is indeed very aggressive in its claim because its neighbours are weak and disunited. Thats the result of the big difference in economic and military power. Lets see if Vietnam is all bark like the Philippines.

    ITS TIME FOR THE VIETNAMESE TO TEACH RED CHINA A LESSON, JUST LIKE WHAT SHE DID IN THE BORDER WAR IN THE LATE 70S IN WHICH CHINA WAS HUMILIATED.

      let me give you a picture of that incident in case you are not born yet. it’s all over in just a month or so. we listen to the radio everyday. vietnam was beaten black and blue that they still trembled for the next 30 days. China is too lenient, too forgiving to them….

         China is doomed to fail. She will spark for a short while but eventually, she will learn her lesson the same way Japan, Germany, Saddam Hussein,etc learned theirs. It will again be the triumph of good versus evil. DIE CHINA DIE!!!!

    The Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan,Vietnam, India and all other countries with overlapping claims with China should support each other against the bully china. We should support Taiwan Indepedence, encourage division of China into South, East, North,West and Cental China into separate and independent countries.
