The 1958 Diplomatic Note of Prime Minister Pham Van Dong and Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa Archipelagos

(LLCT) - Numerous articles have been published that discuss the legality of the contents in PM Pham Van Dong’s 1958 Diplomatic Note and the evidence provided by China. This article, referring to a number of works conducted by domestic and foreign researchers, attempts to analyze the legality of PM Pham Van Dong’s Diplomatic Note in the hope of asserting that the document has a common diplomatic nature, showing the socialist system’s solidarity against US invasions during the early stages of the Cold War. Thus, it does not exert any impact on Vietnam’s legitimate sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa Archipelagos.

The Geneva Conference: Lessons in terms of national interests

(LLCT) - Sixty years ago, on 20 July 1954, a conference in Geneva aimed at putting an end to the war in Indochina concluded. This was an important event in the contemporary Vietnamese history and was the first time Vietnam had participated in a diplomatic activity on an international scale.
