CM Tuki condemns new map showing Arunachal as Chinese territory
Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Nabam Tuki has condemned a new map unveiled by China that showed Arunachal Pradesh as part of it's south Tibet territory.
Tuki told ANI, "What China is doing, is not a new thing. They have made such claims before also, but Arunachal Pradesh is a part of India. We condemn the claim of Arunachal Pradesh as China's territory. We want that government should talk to China and look for a solution."
The new map, which was unveiled recently, not only shows Arunachal Pradesh as its territory but also makes controversial claims about the South China Sea, which may trigger outrage by some other Asian countries like Vietnam and Philippines.
Notably, Vice President Hamid Karzai is right now in China on a bilateral visit to strengthen relations between the two neighbours.
