On August 31, 2017, MOFA Spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang made the following remarks in response to questions from the media regarding the Chinese announcement of an upcoming military exercise in the waters off the mouth of the Gulf of Tonkin:

"Viet Nam is deeply concerned about the announcement by China that it will conduct a military exercise in the waters off the mouth of the Gulf of Tonkin. Our position is that all activities by other countries in the waters within the sovereign right and jurisdiction of Viet Nam should comply with Viet Nam law and international law, especially the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Viet Nam requests China to stop and taking no further action that could complicate the situation in the East Sea.
On August 31, a representative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Viet Nam met with a representative from the Embassy of China in Hanoi to make representation on Viet Nam’s clear stance on the issue"./.
