HÀ N?I — China's unilateral suspension of fishing activities in the waters under Vi?t Nam's sovereignty in the East Sea is void, said the Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).
The ban is a violation of Vi?t Nam's sovereignty, sovereign rights, and jurisdiction in the East Sea, the ministry affirmed in a document recently sent to People’s Committees of the coastal cities and provinces.
The MARD said the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs has enforced this year's temporary fishing ban from 12:00pm (China time) on May 1 to 12:00pm on August 16 in the waters north of 12 degrees north latitude, including the Gulf of Tonkin.
In light of the situation, the MARD asked the People's Committees of coastal cities and provinces to promptly inform fishermen about China's temporary fishing ban.
They were urged to encourage fishermen to continue their normal production activities within the waters of Vi?t Nam and instruct them to form groups and teams when going out to sea to support each other, and promptly report any violations by foreign fishing vessels in the Vietnamese waters to competent agencies.
