New Delhi: A day after China announced names for 15 more places in Arunachal Pradesh, which it claims as “South Tibet”, India on Thursday said that the state is an integral part of the country and “assigning invented names to places does not alter this fact”.

On Wednesday, China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs announced the names of 15 places in Zangnan, the Chinese name for Arunachal Pradesh, the Global Times reported.

Among the official names of the 15 places, which were given exact longitude and latitude, eight are residential places, four are mountains, two are rivers and one is a mountain pass, the report said.
