Handing over the gifts, Deputy Political Commissar of Naval Zone 2, Colonel Nguyen Quoc Van extended his best wishes to those carrying out their duties on the platform.

The gifts were hoped to help the soldiers have a warm Tet and encourage them to overcome challenges, ensuring the country’s sea and island sovereignty.

About 250 nautical miles from the shore, the platform is a group of economic, scientific and technological service stations of Vietnam in the East Sea. It plays a key role in the country’s marine economy and national construction and defence.

DK1 was set up on July 5, 1989, on the continental shelf belonging to the Vung Tau-Con Dao Special Zone (now the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau) with the task of defending the country’s sovereignty over the waters in the southeastern region.

It is a complex of structures of large steel pipes which strike roots deep into coral reefs. Covering these steel pipes is a living space for soldiers who guard the platform.

To date, 14 out of the 15 stations have been improved and expanded. More than 100 solar battery panels have been installed on the platform.
