For Naval warship fans.
Over a decade after buying an aircraft carrier from Kyiv...Beijing's navy has successfully landed fighter planes on its refurbished deck.
The navy landed a J-15 combat fighter on the deck of its Liaoning carrier at sea.
Observers predict the ship won't carry a full complement of planes...or be ready for combat for some time.
Several nations have protested.
Now...Vietnam refuses to stamp the document...issuing time consuming paper visas instead.
An expert observes that it 'basically forces everyone who's a claimant of South China Sea elements to acknowledge it by stamping it.'
