China's new "standard map" has angered its neighbours including India, Phillipines and Malaysia, who have released strongly worded statements about Beijing’s apparent claims on their territory.

China on Monday officially released the 2023 edition of its "standard map" that claimed Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin as belonging to that country. The "map" also showed the entire South China Sea as part of China as it featured in the previous editions of the 'map'.

Philippines on Thursday issued a statement “rejecting” the map because of its inclusion of a dashed line around contested areas of the South China Sea that was subject to an international tribunal ruling in 2016 that found in favor of Manila.
