The map “Huangchao zhi sheng di yu quan tu” published by China in 1905 clearly shows that China’s territory ends at Hainan Island. The Paracel and Spratly Islands belong to Vietnam.

Chu Dinh Phuc (MA), 1984, a member of the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences, is sharing on social networks more than 10 ancient Chinese maps which prove that the Paracel and Spratly Islands are not part of China’s territory.

Chu Dinh Phuc, graduated from the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, is now working for the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences. His job is to collect information and documents on Chinese history. Therefore, it is not accidental that he has in hand the ancient maps published by China and Japan showing that the Paracel and Spratly Islands do not belong to China.

Currently, on Chu Dinh Phuc's personal page, there are more than 10 maps with full annotations, clearly showing the territories of Vietnam and China, of which the Chinese territory does not include the Paracel and Spratly Islands.

The map preserved by Dr. Mai Hong for many years and has recently been publicized when he donated it to the Vietnam National Museum of History on July 25. Information from the map published by China not only supports the legal arguments for Vietnam in asserting its territorial sovereignty, but also puts Chinese public opinion in chaos.

The social network is full of images of the 1905 Chinese map, which is considered convincing evidence that the Spratly and Paracel Islands belong to Vietnam.

Vietnamese Netizens are actively sharing images and information about the map of China without the Paracel and Spratly Islands attached with the slogan "For the sovereignty of the country, for the Paracel and Spratly Islands, please share!"
