We were told that the design of a map of China for Gap T-shirts in some overseas markets had an error. According to the state-owned Global Times, the map also left out southern Tibet and the South China Sea.

The Gap's website originally listed the T-shirts as being available in Canada, Japan, Paris, China, San Francisco and NY.

The company also said all the shirts in China have been recalled and destroyed. It also apologised for "this unintentional mistake and is now conducting internal investigations to quickly rectify this mistake". "We are doing internal checks to correct the mistake as soon as possible", Gap said. "The product has been withdrawn from the Chinese market and completely destroyed", it said. It also added that it would implement more rigorous reviews to ensure the same thing would not happen again.

T-shirts available on GAP's website include those representing Canada, Japan, China, Paris, San Francisco and NY.

"We have noticed this (Gap) statement and we will pay close attention to it", Lu said.

Clothing retailer Zara and Delta Airlines were investigated in January and had to offer apologies after naming Tibet and Taiwan as nations on their websites.

Earlier this month, the White House sharply criticised China's efforts to force foreign airlines to change how they described Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau on their websites as "Orwellian nonsense".

The Chinese Civil Aviation Administration had sent a notice to 36 foreign airlines, including a number of United States carriers, on April 25, asking them to comply with Beijing's standards, according to the White House.

Last month, China's aviation authority warned global carriers to amend their websites to reflect China's sovereignty claims over Taiwan, and to reflect accurately the status of Hong Kong and Macau as Chinese territories, or face severe disruptions to their operations in the world's second-busiest aviation market.

Taiwan has been self-ruled since splitting from the mainland after a 1949 civil war, maintaining its own government, military and independent foreign policy.
