Kathmandu, Oct 19: According to latest reports, China is projecting Jammu Kashmir as an independent country.
Visitors to Tibet, especially journalists invited by the Chinese government, are given handouts where Kashmir is indicated as a country separate from India.
Media kits providing "basic information" about Tibet, which China attacked and annexed in the 1950s, says Tibet "borders with India, Nepal, Myanmar and Kashmir area".
Maps available in China, Myanmar and Nepal too show an India denuded of Kashmir.
China is also asking for the tightening of the open border between India and Nepal.
Earlier, China issued separate visas to Indian passport holders from Jammu Kashmir.
China, which fought a war with India in 1962, says Arunachal Pradesh belongs to it. India says it is an integral and inalienable part of India.
