Vietnam asks China to withdraw missiles from South China Sea

The comments came after CNBC reported last week that China had installed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three outposts in the contested Spratly Islands, which are also claimed by Vietnam among others. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang says in a statement Vietnam has sufficient legal basis and historical evidence to affirm its sovereignty over the Spratlys and the Paracels in the South China Sea.
