Upset with India for allowing exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama to visit Arunachal Pradesh earlier this month, China on Thursday issued standardised spellings of the names of six places in Arunachal Pradesh.

Arunachal Pradesh is an eastern Himalayan state administered by India but claimed by China as Southern Tibet.

Last week, China's civil affairs ministry released a list of six places in the region disputed with India, with what China considers to be their formal names, in Chinese, Tibetan and English to assert its sovereignty. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said the move was appropriate and reflected the names used by Chinese ethnic groups, such as the Tibetans, over a long time.
