The NPC said the Vietnamese Law of the Sea violated "China's territorial sovereignty" and should be corrected.
"The NPC Foreign Affairs Committee hopes the Vietnamese National Assembly [will] honestly respect China's territorial sovereignty and correct the wrongful practice so as to safeguard the China-Vietnam comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership as well as the friendly relations between China's NPC and the Vietnamese National Assembly," members of the People's Congress said in a letter to their Vietnamese counterparts.
The Xinhua News Agency said China protested the inclusion of Xisha and Nansha Islands in the South China Sea. China claims sovereignty over the islands but Vietnam placed them under the jurisdiction of its new Law of the Sea.
