原文标题：China calls Arunachal Pradesh 'southern Tibet'
NEW DELHI: China "illegally" refers to Arunachal Pradesh as south Tibet and claims around 90,000 sq km of Indian territory there, Rajya Sabha was informed today.
"China disputes the international boundary between India and China in the eastern sector and claims approximately 90,000 sq km of Indian territory in the state of Arunachal Pradesh," minister of state for external affairs E Ahamed said in written reply.
"China illegally refers to Arunachal Pradesh as 'southern Tibet'," he said.
The minister said China has been told that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral and inalienable part of India.
India, China to discuss CBMs
India and China are expected to discuss revival of their 'hand-in-hand' exercise and more confidence building measures during the three-day visit of Chinese defence minister General Liang Guanglie starting September 2 in Mumbai.
During the first visit by a Chinese defence minister in last seven years, the two sides will discuss ways of strengthening their defence ties, ministry officials said.
The two sides will also discuss holding of the exercise 'Hand-in-Hand' in China next year, they said.
Guanglie will hold discussions with defence minister A K Antony on the last day of his visit.
The bilateral exercises had started in 2007 but were put on hold after a series of hiccups in the defence ties between the two sides.
The first exercise was held in Kunming in 2007 in China whereas the second was held in India at Belgaum in 2008.
After the denial of visa to the then Northern Army Commander Lt Gen B S Jaswal by the Chinese in 2010, India froze all bilateral defence exchanges with Beijing.
Though the defence exchanges have started now, there are still some problems as China declined to issue visa to an IAF officer belonging to Arunachal Pradesh.

But India tried to be violent in 1962 (against China) but failed SO VERY MISERABLY!!! That is why India stays quiet, India knows that China has the ability to call India's bluff, like in 1962 and walk into, and out of, India at will. Maybe the Chinese will take more casualties than the last time but the result will be the same. Indian Army is dangerously under prepared, under equipped and has little to none battle experience. Corruption and factionalism has not spared even the Indian army.

For years China has been issuing a seperate VISA for the residents of Arunachal and J&K and our govt has turned a blind eye to it. So y the fuss if they call it so. The threat is if Indian govt doesnt take a stand on issues against china then maybe China some day would refer India as South China!!!

A Jewish supported China is a weak and insecure nation. They talk big but run from battle as they did in the Indo-Pak War of 1971. Let them keep howling but keep our nuclear weapons and army ready. Never trust them as they are a single man show and not democratic. At present we have an edge as we are militarily stronger than China.and they know they will vanish if they start a war. Do not forget they can not even take on Philippines at sea and this rogue state (China) has given two Uranium-based nuclear weapons to Pakistan, which if the Taliban get hold of could easily be used against NATO.

For starters, we should claim Tibet as part of India. Then we should ask China to get out of occupied Kashmir. If this is not enough, we should claim South China as part of India. Our politicians need to be bold and then start off shore ventures with Vietnam.

Hinduism and Bhuddism have same culture. It is better for China to take all north east states. If not, they will join with banglaadesh in future. If China comes, they will throw out those illegal immigrants out of Northeast.. Everyone will be safer in the hands of China and Burma. Instead of always thinking in nationaalistic way, think atleast for few minutes in religiouss way.. Assam already have 45% m0slim population (0-6 year children).

If you keep repeating something over and over again, people start believing in it. China did this earlier with Tibet and now Arunachal Pradesh. India should play as China does and lay its claim over Tibet and Southern chinese territories. China will be too busy defending its claim.

We were taught in schools that Arunachal Pradesh is a state just like any other state in India. Emotional outbursts just based on that text book knowledge is of no use. Make efforts to understand the history behind Arunachal Pradesh. The name, Arunachal Pradesh, itself is less than 50 years old. The region was part of Tibet for many centuries. This India-China dispute was created by British with the creation of McMahon Line. Independent India has just inherited the issue. It is a disputed territory even if we do not acknowledge it is public. We need to think of ways to overcome the issue instead of getting emotional.
