China-Vietnam relations facing greater chance of derailment

Por • 27 ene, 2014 • Category: Política

Since January 18, some cities in Vietnam have hosted a series of picture exhibitions, memorial services, and international symposiums to mark the 40th anniversary of the naval battle between China and South Vietnam in 1974. These events were held to challenge the established sovereignty of Xisha Islands, also called «Hoang Sa Islands» in Vietnam. It has also been reported that Vietnam will commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Sino-Vietnamese war in 1979. There is a growing chance that Beijing-Hanoi relations will derail.
