Ha Giang Vietnam January 13 ANI A video posted on the Twitter account of Lee Ann Quann on January 3 shows Chinese soldiers throwing stones at Vietnamese construction workers and abusing the unarmed workers in Ha Giang province of northern Vietnam, bordering China.
The Chinese soldiers shouted and threw stones at the Vietnamese digging along the Vietnam-China border. Civilian workers guarded the riverbanks on the Vietnamese side to prevent erosion when the river water was tight, said Lee Ann Quann, a caption on the video clip, reported The Hong Kong Post.
This comes at a time when Vietnamese agricultural exports to China have stopped, Chinese ports are clogged and Vietnamese trucks that have returned from border areas are selling their products at throwaway prices.
A popular blog in the Vernacular language, which is banned by the Vietnamese government for anti-China articles, published an article referencing the tweet and commemorating the 1979 China-Vietnam War on January 4.
The article pointed out that the Chinese side is trying to encroach on territory to the north after signing an agreement on the delimitation of the land border in late 1999 on the China-Vietnam border. The people do not know the Chinese position and are confused when the Chinese side acts like this on the China-Vietnam border, according to The HK Post.
