China has announced the names of Chinese alphabets, Tibetan and Roman alphabets for 15 places in India’s northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. China claims Arunachal Pradesh as southern Tibet.

According to the Chinese government’s mouthpiece Global Times, China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs on Wednesday approved Chinese characters, Tibetan and Roman alphabets for 15 place names of Arunachal. China has given the Chinese name of Arunachal Pradesh as Zangnan.
