Viet­nam, China in new spat over fish­er­men’s de­ten­tions

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

HANOI | China said Thurs­day that the de­ten­tion of two Viet­namese fish­ing boats and 21 crew mem­bers near the dis­puted Para­cel Is­lands was law­ful, af­ter Hanoi de­manded their “im­me­di­ate and un­con­di­tional” re­lease.

Hanoi has said the March 3 ar­rests “se­ri­ously vi­o­lated Viet­nam’s sovereignty” and that China must stop its “hin­drance of Viet­namese fish­er­men.”
