New Chinese map lays claim to Arunachal Pradesh.

published on June 28, 2014
New Delhi: In a fresh controversy, China has published a new map that has unnerved sentiments among governments ranging from India to those in Southeast Asia.
As per a report in The Washington Post, the latest map shows the totality of China’s territorial claims. In comparison, earlier maps used to separately denote China’s declared claims, including over the South China Sea.

Chinese state newspaper People’s Daily has claimed that Chinese citizens would now be able to “fully, directly know the full map of China”.

“Readers won’t ever think again that China’s territory has primary and secondary claims,” it added.

The map shows India’s Arunachal Pradesh state as Chinese territory. Not just that, a large part of Jammu and Kashmir is also shown as part of China.

China claims most of Arunachal Pradesh as part of “Southern Tibet”, and is also illegally occupying a part of Jammu and Kashmir divided by the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Even the perception of LAC differs on both sides, as claimed by officials, and this has led to several Chinese incursions into the Indian territory.
