Hoang Sa, Truong Sa exhibition opens in HCM city - Hoang Sa, Truong Sa exhibition opens in HCM city - Website Ho Chi Minh City
Over 250 documents, maps, photographs and objects are on display at an exhibition launched in Ho Chi Minh City on October 3.
The exhibits, collected by the Naval Brigade 125, the Vietnam News Agency, Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper and a number of local organisations, are grouped into three main topics on Vietnam’s sovereignty over sea and island. These are Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos in maps, protecting Vietnamese sea and island sovereignty, and Hoang Sa and Truong Sa today.
The exhibition features numerous ancient maps produced in Vietnam and abroad affirming that Hoang Sa and Truong Sa belong to Vietnam.
In addition, they prove that Vietnamese governments in the past fully exercised their sovereignty and sovereign rights over a long and continuous period.
The exhibition expresses the gratitude for many generations of the Vietnamese as well as soldiers who guard the nation’s sovereignty.
