East Sea issue was also raised by Dr. G. Jayachandra Reddy. He gave many natural evidence of geography and history of possessing Truong Sa and Hoang Sa islands and concluded that Viet Nam’s evidence of sovereignty is undeniable. Consequently, to cope with China’s ambition, what should be the solution for Viet Nam? According to Mr. Reddy, one of the important solutions is that Viet Nam needs to enhance relation and to leverage supports of ASEAN Member states, other countries such as India, Japan..., participate in building and developing ports, exploiting gas and oil in order to confirm the appearance and the sovereignty of Viet Nam in East Sea. At the same time, Viet Nam and Philippines, Malaysia...need more efforts to solve conflicts in East Sea.
