Taiwan Students and Teachers to camp at Spratly Islands


Around 40 Taiwanese students and teachers will have a camping trip to the disputed Spratly Islands, according to Taiwan's Central News Agency (CNA) on Monday night.

The Ministry of National Defense was quoted as saying that the voyage will include 10-member teams from four universities. Each team will have one professor, nine graduates and doctoral students below 40 years old.

Upon arriving the Spratly Islands, the report said that the students will send postcards to "assert Taiwan's sovereignty over the islands."

However, the CNA report said the ministry declined to say when the camping will be held, due to "security concerns."

The CNA report said this will be the third year the defense ministry is organizing such a camp, with this year's program focusing on the "history of the South China Sea, maritime law and marine ecology."

Taiwan is one of six claimants to the Spratlys, the others being the Philippines, Brunei, China, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
