July 9, 2017: Amid the ensuing India-China standoff on Sikkim Border, China's recent claim over Ziro of Arunachal Pradesh has come as another move in its part to take over the state. Reportedly, in its recently published travel book China has included Ziro and has stated it to be a "popular tourist place of the country".

It may be mentioned that China has been claiming Arunachal Pradesh as South Tibet and had previously renamed 6 places of the Indian state on their official map in April, further reclaiming it as part of their country. The move, as stated by Chinese state media, came as retaliation against 14th Dalai Lama's visit to the northeastern state in the same month.
Recently, China and India have been engaged in a standoff in the Dokalam area near the Bhutan tripoint since June 16 after a Chinese army's construction party came to build a road. Doka La is the Indian name for the region which Bhutan recognizes as Dokalam, while China claims it as part of its Donglang region. Since the stand-off began last month, China has issued a series of warnings to India asking it withdraw its troops from Doklam, an area in Bhutan near Sikkim that Beijing claims as its own. This week, the Chinese foreign ministry told reporters that there couldn't be any "meaningful dialogue" between leaders of the two countries till Indian soldiers backed out. India, on the other hand, wants Chinese troops to leave the Bhutanese territory to reduce tension in the area.
Reportedly, China has issued a safety advisory on 7 July which is for a month which has advised its citizens travelling to and living in India over the worsening border row between the two countries. Further it says it says the citizens need to carry personal identification and inform their family, colleagues, and friends in advance if travelling out of home. It also asks them to strictly comply with Indian laws and regulations and respect local and religious customs.
