Arunachal Pradesh: China renames districts in disputed India state

China has renamed six districts along a disputed Himalayan border region with India, in a move seen as “retaliation” for a visit by the Dalai Lama.
The Tibetan spiritual leader, 81, had visited Arunachal Pradesh in India’s remote north-east earlier in April.
China had said the visit had a “negative impact” on bilateral relations and warned India against “undermining” Beijing’s interests.
India has not yet commented on the Chinese announcement, made on Tuesday.
However, it has maintained that the Dalai Lama’s visit was purely for religious reasons. It is also not the first time he has visited the state – he made official trips there in 1983, 1997, twice in 2003 and in 2009.
