The Hanoitimes - Pentagon calls the missile tests "disturbing" while Hanoi demands related parties respect international treaties.

Vietnam has called on related parties to respect sovereignty of other countries after China reportedly tested anti-ship missiles in the South China Sea, saying it would keep a close watch on the issue.
 
Hanoi made the statement over the news that China has been conducting a series of anti-ship ballistic missile tests in the hotly contested waters of the South China Sea as reported by NBCNews.

The Pentagon said on Tuesday [July 2] that “the Pentagon was aware of the Chinese missile launch from the man-made structures in the South China Sea near the Spratly Islands,” CNN quoted spokesman Lt. Col. Dave Eastburn as saying.
