    0

    WASHINGTON, D.C.: Vietnam’s president on Thursday (Friday in Manila) voiced firm opposition to China’s claims in the South China Sea. President Truong Tan Sang rejected China’s so-called nine-dash line through which it claims virtually all of the strategic sea including islands close to neighboring countries. “We cannot find any legal foundation or scientific basis for such a claim and therefore it is the consistent policy of Vietnam to oppose the nine-dash line plan by China,” Sang told the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
