HANOI (Reuters) - China's construction of a new platform in a remote part of the disputed South China Sea is a serious violation of Vietnam's sovereignty, its foreign ministry said on Thursday.

The platform, which sits on the strategically-located Bombay Reef and was revealed in satellite images published this week by a U.S. think tank, which said the structure could be used for military purposes.
