Dear Dr Schmidt and Mr. Hanke:

It has come to our attention that Google maps when accessed from China shows a map of China having the hand drawn dotted line wrongfully claiming almost all of the South China Sea.

This incorrect and premeditated claim by China has been strenuously objected to by all Southeast Asian countries, especially Vietnam and the Philippines, the two countries which are most affected by this aggressive act of Chinese authority. This fabricated map of China with the hand drawn sea territory line, which is dubbed “the cow tongue shape” line, is the subject of on-going protests by not only all the countries in Southeast Asia but also the majority of countries in the world .

As concerned Vietnamese, in concert with the letter we sent to you on September 5, 2011 alerting the inclusion of the “U shape” boundary line by Chinese authority in their national map, we request that you act quickly to have the hand drawn dotted line on South China Sea removed. The longer this falsified dotted border line is shown in your Google maps-China website, the more injurious it is to the integrity of the territory of Vietnam, the Philippines and the other countries in the South China Sea.

Thank you for your prompt consideration.

Yours Sincerely,

On behalf of concerned Vietnamese,

Hung Nguyen,
Khoa Ba Ngo,
Quang Long Le,
