HCMC - Czech journalist Pavel Herman has launched a book titled “Vietnam - Past, Present and Future” which reflects his views about the history, culture and people of Vietnam, the Vietnam News Agency reports.

In the “Vietnam - Hidden Beauty” chapter, Pavel Herman presents an overall picture of the country through his lens, from the nature and climate to its political system, economy, culture and religions.

The “Vietnam - Country of Seas and Islands” chapter features the author’s study on the seas and islands of Vietnam.  This part focuses on the important role of the East Sea in the country’s economic development as well as national defense and security, and provides legal and historical evidence proving that Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes belong to Vietnam’s sovereignty.

Regarding disputes in the East Sea, Herman says the area has become a hot spot on the international map, and China’s construction of artificial islands and militarization have violated international law, increased tensions, and seriously threatened peace and stability in the region.

According to the Czech journalist, ensuring peace, stability, safety and freedom of navigation and aviation in the East Sea has special significance. Therefore, disputes in the East Sea should be solved by peaceful measures, including diplomatic and legal processes in line with regulations of international law.

Herman also speaks highly of the decision of the Communist Party to launch the reform policy since 1986 until now, which has contributed significantly to economic development, improved people’s living standards, ensured social welfare, and perfected the legal system.

Regarding the bilateral ties between Vietnam and the Czech Republic, the author highlights the two countries’ traditional relationship and reviews the bilateral cooperation in multiple areas including politics, economy, trade, culture and education.

He also praises the Vietnamese community in the Czech Republic for their hardworking spirit and deep integration into the local community.
