FAO lists J-K and Arunachal Pradesh as independent entities

J&K and Arunachal Pradesh have been shown as separate countries alongwith India in a report by FAO.

New Delhi: Jammu and Kashmir and Arunachal
Pradesh have been shown as separate countries alongwith India
in a report by the Food and Agriculture Organisation.

The Indian states figure in the list for East Asia
countries. The names are there in annexure five of the 2010
FAO report to assess greenhouse gas emissions from the dairy
sector.

Arunachal Pradesh has been spelt as `Arunashal` Pradesh
in the list which also shows Aksai Chin as a separate country.
China holds Aksai Chin as its integral part while India says
it is part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

FAO saw nothing wrong with the names of the two states
figuring separately, contending that disputed areas were being
treated as independent entities.
