Google satellite maps showing areas of Arunachal Pradesh in Mandarin rather than Hindi or English, effectively making them appear as part of China. The changes were first noticed on Thursday, just hours before Friday’s crucial Sino-Indian talks over border dispute.

Meanwhile, In the backdrop of Beijing’s fresh claims on Arunachal Pradesh, the special representatives of India and China met on Friday to discuss the boundary issue, but not much forward movement is expected in the two-day talks.
