China says it is moving a second oil rig closer to the Vietnamese coast in disputed waters amid continuing tensions and confrontations between ships from the countries.
The shifting of the rig comes as officials from the sides said they made no progress in talks about the deployment of another Chinese rig.
China has blamed Vietnam for interfering with the first rig's operations and causing friction in their relations.
