China warns Rosneft against drilling in disputed territory

BEIJING/MOSCOW, May 17 (PRIME) -- The territories in the South China Sea, where Russian oil major RosneftТs unit in Vietnam has started drilling, belong to China, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said on Thursday and asked the company to respect the countryТs sovereignty.

Rosneft earlier said that Rosneft Vietnam B.V. had started drilling the Lan Do deposit on the shelf on the disputed territory.

The Chinese official said, УWe have paid attention to the corresponding statements. I will reiterate that no state, organization, company or person can lead exploratory activities in the waters under Chinese sovereignty without Chinese authoritiesТ permission. We call on the corresponding sides to pay due respect to ChinaТs sovereignty.Ф

However, a Rosneft official said that the licensed areas are located in the Vietnamese territorial waters.

УThe company carries out its operations on the VietnamТs shelf in strict correspondence with the license obligations and fulfills the Republic of Viet-Nam subsoil use legislation,Ф the official told PRIME.
