China waded into a new controversy over its maritime claims as Vietnam and the Philippines protested the printing of Chinese map on the new e-passport showing the disputed islands in the South China Sea as part of its territory.
Reports say both the Philippines and Vietnam have objected to China over the e-passport including the disputed islands in the South China Sea which they lay claim to.

Though technically it is Chinese passport, they argue that it posed a problem in stamping visas to its holders as it could amount to endorsing China’s stand.
