The exhibition, which is organized by the Ministry of Information and Communications in collaboration with the Bac Giang provincial authorities and Army Corps 2, starting from November 24, features historical evidence confirming that the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos belong to Vietnam.

On showcase are documents issued by the Vietnamese feudal dynasties from the 17th to 20th century and research of Vietnamese and international scholars, along with maps, images and atlases published by various foreign countries, asserting Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos.

The event is part of the activities to raise public awareness and responsibility of Vietnamese people, especially youths in protecting the country’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa.
