China has announced its decision to standardise the official names for six places in Arunachal Pradesh, calling this provoking move as "legitimate."

"China's Ministry of Civil Affairs announced on April 14 that it had standardised in Chinese characters, Tibetan and Roman alphabet the names of six places in 'South Tibet', which India calls ' Arunachal Pradesh ', in accordance with the regulations of the central government," reported Global Times.

It's been only a few days that China had expressed its displeasure over India hosting the Dalai Lama in Arunachal Pradesh . It was then that China had warned India of "necessary measures" to defend its territorial sovereignty and interests.

During the visit, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju , had asserted the state to be "an inseparable part of India".
