Nguyen Thi Lan Anh of the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam explains [1] why China made an error in moving an oil rig in the contested waters between China and Vietnam.

China’s act of locating its oil rig in contested waters in the Paracels is more than a dispute over sovereignty. It is also a dispute about international law of the sea.

The issue has ignited [2] a strong anti-China sentiment and even street protests in Vietnam.
