Truong Sa archipelago, the national sacred territorial waters and the furthermost part of the national territory has been a great attraction to a large number of people in the mainland, especially reporters.
They love to write reports on the so-called “stormy archipelago” of Truong Sa to feel the immenseness, depth, animation and strength of the sea. A lot of lively articles have been written about the reality, the beauty, the spirit of living, combat readiness, and braveness, the resilience and the silent sacrifice of islanders and troops stationed on the island to have help local people, overseas Vietnamese and international friends further understand Viet Nam’s sovereignty over its seas and islands. Not a few of these coverages have received big national prizes and been ever-resounding.
Reporter Manh Thang has taken some photos of reporters who have recently covered news and other information relating to Truong Sa’s troops and local people during their trip to Truong Sa archipelago. PANO would like to introduce them on the occasion of 87th anniversary of Viet Nam Revolutionary Press Day on June 21st.
