越南 – 中国山连山，江连江
Dear Chinese people,
In the past, China has been invaded by other countries, so Chinese people also feel the pain and the loss when a foreign country was invaded.
I am a child of Vietnam. Certainly you can understand my feelings when our sovereignty is infringed by your army.
China has been invaded by other countries, so Chinese people also feel the pain and the loss when a foreign country was invaded.
Our nation has experienced many struggles with your country and other empires. We had lost so much. Therefore, we want to live in peace, friendship and cooperation. We always hope that our both countries will follow the desire and achievements that were gained by a great effort of President Ho Chi Minh and President Mao Zedong as well as the predecessors of the two countries. We hope that our country will follow the slogan about friendship that President Ho Chi Minh said, “We are comrades as well as brothers”, as the lyrics of composer Do Nhuan’s song, Vietnam – China: “Vietnam – China, joined by mountains, joined by rivers, sharing Eastern Sea, an friendship, early like the dawn.”
I am sure that you also want to live in peace, we do too. War is painful and death. War causes countless families to be in afflictive situations. Our wounds due to wars haven’t been healed. We don’t want to suffer that great pain once more time.
However, if that happens, all Vietnamese people are willing to sacrifice once more time to protect our freedom and independence. Our 90 million people are ready to protect our country together.
Dear peoples of the world – those who love peace,
China is violating Vietnam’s sovereignty. They are violating Vietnam’s law as well as UNCLOS 1982 and the United Nations Charter. Therefore, we look forwards to your help to protect our country.
Dear all of Vietnamese,
Because of peace, we have to compromise. But if China is still aggressive, I call for all of Vietnamese to stand up to protect our Vietnam.
We are ready for a Dien Bien Phu on the sea. Anything can be ignored but sovereigty and national jurisdiction could not be violated.
Long live Vietnam!
Long live Ho Chi Minh!
Long live Vo Nguyen Giap!
