Hang made the remarks at the ministry’s regular press conference in Ha Noi on March 26, while answering reporters’ queries regarding Vietnam’s response to Chinese media’s information about China’s launch of two research stations on Fiery Cross and Subi Reefs of Vietnam's Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.
