China releases a new map including Arunachal Pradesh

China on Monday released a 2023 map that includes Arunachal Pradesh, Aksai Chin region, Taiwan and the disputed South China Sea.

The 2023 edition of China’s standard map was officially released on Monday. It was put up on the website of the Standard Map Service under the Ministry of Natural Resources, the state-run Global Times X (Twitter) said in a post.

A map displayed by the Global Times shows Arunachal Pradesh, which China claims as southern Tibet, and Aksai Chin, occupied in the 1962 war, as part of China.

The map also shows the island of Taiwan and most of the South China Sea as Chinese territory.

China claims Taiwan as part of its mainland. Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have claims over territories in the South China Sea.

Relations between the two countries had soured after a clash between Indian and Chinese soldiers along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh. After that the situation came under control. But now China has shown the territory of India on its map.
