China changes names of 15 places along Arunachal border
Last year, China had renamed 15 places in the area bordering Arunachal Pradesh as Chinese and Tibetan. China’s Civil Affairs Ministry had said – this is a step taken on the basis of our sovereignty and history. It is China’s right. Earlier in 2017, China had changed the names of 6 places.
