China to destroy over 300,000 more world maps for not showing Taiwan, Arunachal as its territory

(TibetanReview.net, Apr04’19) – China has ordered the destruction of 300,000 more maps for not mentioning the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh and the independent nation of Taiwan as parts of its territory and has moved to file a lawsuit against four persons for trying to export them to the Netherlands, reported India’s PTI news agency Apr 2, citing China’s official Global Times newspaper Apr 2.

China in recent years took to call the north-eastern Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh as part of South Tibet and to routinely object to Indian leaders visiting the state to highlight its stand. China had sent troops to grab the territory on Oct 20, 1962 but inexplicably withdrew from it a month later.

The latest cartographic crackdown has taken place in South China’s Guangdong Province where customs officers have said more than 300,000 world maps with “boundary mistakes” will be destroyed and a lawsuit filed against four suspects for intending to export the maps to the Netherlands.

The customs bureau at the port of Wenjindu in Guangdong Province was stated to have recovered 264,983 “incorrect” world maps in English for export to the Netherlands on Jan 17. They were stated to have been printed by a company in Dongguan, Guangdong province, as a part of a total of 306,057.

The same Chinese state newspaper had reported Mar 25 that customs authorities in Qingdao, a port city in East China’s Shandong Province, had destroyed nearly 30,000 “incorrect” world maps for the same reason.
