Gap says sorry for T-shirts with "incorrect map" of China
US retailer Gap has apologised for selling T-shirts which it said showed an "Incorrect map" of China. The design featured just the mainland and not territories that China also claims, such as Taiwan. Gap is the latest in a string of foreign firms to face a backlash for not adhering to China's territorial claims. The post on Weibo said the T-shirt, which was being sold in Canada, did not show Chinese-claimed territories, including south Tibet, Taiwan and islands in the South China Sea. China also claims a large part of territory in the South China Sea, which neighbouring Asian countries dispute.
