Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said his government was considering various “defence options” against China, including legal action, following the deployment of a Chinese oil rig to disputed waters in the South China Sea. Dung’s comments, given in a written response to questions from Reuters, are the first time he has suggested Vietnam would take legal measures, a threat likely to infuriate Beijing. Dung said in an email sent while on a visit to Manila late on Wednesday, “Vietnam is considering various defence options, including legal actions in accordance with international law.”
