BEIJING,
 
Oct.
 
12
 
(Xinhua)
‐‐
China
 
and
 
Vietnam
 
on
 
Tuesday
 
signed
 
an
 
agreement
 
on
 
basic
 
principles
 
guiding
 
the
 
settlement
 
of 
 
maritime
 
issues
 
existing
 
between
 
the
 
two
 
countries.
 
The
 
six
point
 
agreement
 
is
 
in
 
accordance
 
with
 
the
 
consensus
 
reached
 
by
 
the
 
leaders
 
of 
 
China
 
and
 
Vietnam
 
and
 
is
 
based
 
on
 
a
 
1993
 
agreement
 
on
 
basic
 
principles
 
for
 
resolving
 
territorial
 
and
 
border
 
issues
 
existing
 
between
 
the
 
two
 
countries,
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
 
The
 
two
 
countries
 
should
 
remain
 
committed
 
to
 
friendly
 
consultations
 
in
 
order
 
to
 
properly
 
handle
 
maritime
 
issues
 
and
 
make
 
the
 
South
 
China
 
Sea
 
a
 
sea
 
of 
 
peace,
 
friendship
 
and
 
cooperation,
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
 
The
 
agreement
 
was
 
signed
 
by
 
China's
 
Vice
 
Foreign
 
Minister
 
Zhang
 
Zhijun
 
and
 
his
 
Vietnamese
 
counterpart
 
Ho
 
Xuan
 
Son.
 
China
 
and
 
Vietnam
 
should
 
seek
 
a
 
basic
 
and
 
long
term
 
approach
 
that
 
will
 
be
 
acceptable
 
for
 
both
 
sides
 
in
 
solving
 
maritime
 
disputes
 
on
 
the
 
basis
 
of 
 
legislation
 
and
 
principles
 
enshrined
 
in
 
international
 
law,
 
including
 
the
 
United
 
Nations
 
Convention
 
on
 
the
 
Law
 
of 
 
the
 
Sea
 
signed
 
in
 
1982,
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
 
Both
 
sides
 
should
 
fully
 
respect
 
legal
 
principles,
 
take
 
history
 
and
 
other
 
relevant
 
issues
 
into
 
consideration
 
and
 
accommodate
 
each
 
other's
 
concerns
 
in
 
a
 
constructive
 
manner,
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
 
In
 
the
 
process
 
of 
 
negotiating
 
maritime
 
issues,
 
both
 
sides
 
should
 
abide
 
by
 
the
 
agreements
 
and
 
consensus
 
reached
 
by
 
the
 
countries'
 
senior
 
leaders
 
and
 
implement
 
the
 
Declaration
 
on
 
the
 
Conduct
 
of 
 
Parties
 
in
 
the
 
South
 
China
 
Sea
 
(DOC),
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
 
Both
 
sides
 
should
 
solve
 
maritime
 
disputes
 
through
 
negotiations
 
and
 
friendly
 
consultations,
 
and
 
the
 
two
 
countries
 
should
 
consult
 
with
 
other
 
countries
 
if 
 
they
 
are
 
also
 
involved
 
in
 
the
 
disputes,
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
 
While
 
seeking
 
a
 
basic
 
and
 
long
term
 
approach
 
to
 
resolve
 
maritime
 
issues,
 
both
 
sides
 
should
 
explore
 
interim
 
and
 
temporary
 
solutions,
 
including
 
research
 
and
 
negotiations
 
on
 
the
 
 joint
 
development
 
of 
 
the
 
sea,
 
without
 
impacting
 
each
 
side's
 
stance
 
and
 
position,
 
the
 
agreement
 
said.
