Vietnam and the Philippines criticized China's decision to include disputed South China Sea islands on maps that are printed inside new Chinese passports.

The Philippines "strongly protests" China's decision to include the disputed maritime areas, foreign affairs ministry spokesman Raul Hernandez said.

The map in the passports includes the Spratly island chain which is the subject of overlapping claims by China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Brunei, Malaysia and the Philippines, according to the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency's website.
