China is very sensitive to its national integrity and pride; India must learn a lesson from China. In India, many establishments show carelessness while reproducing the Indian maps for the promotion of their products, and if any flaws are detected, they simply apologise and exonerate themselves from the crime of treason !
Beijing (China) – Customs officials in China have ordered the destruction of 3 lakh more maps for not mentioning Arunachal Pradesh and Taiwan as part of its territory and decided to file a lawsuit against four persons for trying to export them to the Netherlands, according to a media report.
Last month, officials in China destroyed 30,000 world maps printed in the country for incorrectly showing the borders with India and depicting Taiwan as a separate country. China claims the North-Eastern Indian State of Arunachal Pradesh as part of South Tibet. China routinely objects to Indian leaders visiting Arunachal Pradesh to highlight its stand.
The two countries have so far held 21 rounds of talks to resolve the border dispute covering 3,488-kms.-long Line of Actual Control. China also claims the estranged island of Taiwan as its part.
The customs bureau at the port of Wenjindu in China’s Guangdong Province recovered 264,983 incorrect world maps in English for export to the Netherlands on 17th January. The maps were printed by a company in Dongguan in China’s Guangdong province. In total, the company had printed 306,057 problematic maps, which will now be destroyed.
