TAIPEI (Taiwan News) Vietnam's government announced on Friday (Nov. 8 ) that all Chinese-made smartphones and car GPS navigation devices that depict China's fictitious "nine-dash line" in the South China Sea will be confiscated.

Vietnam's state-owned VTC News announced that any smartphones built by Chinese companies, such as Huawei and Xiaomi, or GPS automotive navigation devices that contain maps displaying the disputed nine-dash line will be confiscated by customs officials. The General Department of Vietnam Customs said it would instruct the relevant departments to take measures to stop "violations of Vietnam's territorial sovereignty."
