New Delhi: As Prime Minster Narendra Modi began his three-day China visit with Chinese President Xi Jinping's hometown Xi'an yesterday, state-run media greeted him with a wrong map of India.

The map aired by the CCTV excluded Arunachal Pradesh and Kashmir from the Indian territory.

India and China have a long-standing border issues related to Arunachal Pradesh as China claims that Arunachal Pradesh is part of China. India also disputes China occupied Aksai Chin which it insist is illegal. Aksai Chin is a rocky and largely empty region far to the northwest.

The two sides also fought a brief war in 1962 over Aksai Chin.

During his 90-minute talks with Jinping yesterday, PM Modi raised a series of issues between the two countries, including how China issues visas to applicants from Arunachal Pradesh, which it claims as Southern Tibet.

 
According to reports, Modi also shared concerns with President Xi about the $46 billion economic corridor that China is building through Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.
