China removes BRI map that showed J-K, Arunachal Pradesh as part of India
By Thenorthlines 22-May-2019
China had reportedly removed maps showing Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and Arunachal Pradesh as part of India from the BRI website during the second Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) Summit which was underway in Beijing.
A map hosted on Chinese government’s MOFCOM or Ministry of Commerce’s website displaying routes under China’s flagship Belt and Road Initiative, which showed Arunachal Pradesh and parts of Jammu & Kashmir as part of India – at odds with China’s own stand on these areas, appears to have since been removed.
Though India is boycotting the second Belt and Road Forum taking place in Beijing at the moment, the map also incorrectly showed India to be part of the BRI. The map did not clearly distinguish Pakistan Occupied Kashmir which is a core part of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). ‘
India has expressed strong opposition against the CPEC, an important connectivity project under the BRI, which links the Gwadar Port in Pakistan’s Balochistan with China’s Xinjiang province, which is the main reason for the country not participating in the BRI.
The display of the map on a prominent Chinese government site at a time when the Second Belt and Road Forum is ongoing is at odds with China’s stance. Last month, China destroyed nearly 30,000 world maps printed in the country for not showing Arunachal Pradesh as part of its territory.
