Vietnam Demand China to Remove the Signal Jammer in Spratly Islands

According to the U.S. intelligence, the new jamming equipment was installed on Fiery Cross Reef and Mischief Reef.

Vietnam’s foreign ministry spokesperson said China has seriously violated Vietnam’s sovereignty by installing military jamming equipment on outposts in the Spratly Islands.

“The equipment installed by China causes radio jamming and seriously violates Vietnam’s sovereignty,” he added.

The establishment of China’s electronic warfare equipment to cause radio jamming on Mischief Reef and Fiery Cross on the Spratly Islands goes against international conventions, and Vietnam requested China to remove the system.

Satellite imagery taken by commercial satellite company DigitalGlobe shows a suspected jammer system with its antenna extended on Mischief Reef in the South China Sea.

Meanwhile, the Philippine government kept mum of this harmful electronic equipment.
