On Saturday, India reacted sharply to a new Chinese map that shows Arunachal Pradesh as part of China, the latest flare-up of a territorial dispute that has festered between the Asian giants for decades. Its foreign ministry dismissed the new map issued by Chinese authorities this week, saying cartographic depiction did not change the reality that Arunachal was part of India.

"If I show your house in my map, it won’t make your house mine", said Vijay Kumar Singh, Minister of Development of North Eastern Region.

Indians reacted harshly to this statement on twitter.
