Taipei, March 30 (CNA) The Republic of China government has the right to conduct exercises on Taiping Island in the South China Sea, an indivisible part of the ROC territory, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said on Thursday.

The ministry made the statement after a routine drill conducted by the country's Coast Guard on Taiping from March 29 to 31 drew a protest from Vietnam.

The MOFA stressed that the ROC has irrefutable rights over islands in the South China Sea and their waters based on international law and maritime law.

The ROC government is willing to work with related countries to promote peace and stability in the South China Sea, based on the principles of putting aside disputes, jointly developing resources, and negotiating on equal footing, an official reiterated.

Six countries -- Taiwan, China, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines and Brunei -- claim sovereignty over all or some of the islands in the South China Sea and their surrounding waters. (Courtesy of CNA)
