A new allegation from Peking: Vietnam's Hoang Sa and Truong Sa andChina's "Xisha" and "Nansha" are not the same 33SupplementsConclusion 43
For decades now, the Chinese authorities have nurtured ambitions over the two Vietnamese archipelagoes of Hoang Sa (i.e Paracels) and Truong Sa(i.e. Spratley or Spratly). which are called "Xisha" and "Nansha" by the Chinese.
The Chinese authorities have been searching for testimonies in ancient booksto prove that their ancestors had discovered and exploited these two archipelagoeslong ago. But most embarrassingly they have failed to bring out when the Chinesestate began to take possession of "Xisha" and "Nansha" and how this stateexercised its sovereignty over them.
In the booklet Vietnam's sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Saarchipelagoes published in September 1979, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of theSocialist Republic of Vietnam has made public a number of historical documentsand juridical evidence which unmistakably prove that:
Vietnam has been in possession of the two archipelagoes of Hoang Sa
andTruong Sa since the time when no other countries claimed sovereignty over them; — 
Vietnam has been continuously exercising its sovereignty over these twoarchipelagoes ever since.In the present booklet, the views of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam will be briefly presented to prove once again that the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa ar-chipelagoes have for a long and uninterrupted period of time been part and parcelof Vietnamese territories, that the Chinese claim over these two archipelagoes- iswithout juridical grounds and that the Chinese occupation of the Hoang Sa ar-chipelago by force is an act of aggression.
