Jointly organized by the Ministry of Information and Communications and Military Region 1’s Command, the event displays publications, documents, items and around 100 maps published by domestic and international researchers and scholars on the Truong Sa and the Hoang Sa archipelagos.

The displayed documents affirmed that Vietnam has long asserted, exercised and protected its sovereignty over the two archipelagos through its history.

The exhibition, which runs until August 8, aims to nurture people’s patriotism and enhance the awareness among soldiers and people of the national construction and defense cause.
