Vietnam, China continue talks on Tonkin gulf

The Vietnam-China joint working group on the delineation of the sea area off Bac Bo (Tonkin) Gulf held its fourth round of talks in Beijing from January 17-18.

The two sides exchanged views and reached consensus on a number of issues, creating a basis for further negotiations to define sea territories between the two countries.

Officials of the two countries agreed that the fifth round of talks would be held in Vietnam later this year.
