Chinese game “Panda’s tour around the world” sparked the ire among Vietnamese netizens as it used a map featuring China's illegal "nine-dash line". It is said that China’s Fuzhou Zhi Yong Information Co., Ltd illegally provided this game to Vietnam users via application stores of Google and Apple, Thanh Nien Newspaper reported.

As of November 16, this game was eliminated from Google Play and App Store, said the Department of Broadcasting, Television, and Electronic Information under the Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications.

The Department stressed that it would continue reviewing games featuring illegal “nine-dash line” and request Google and Apple to get rid of them from the country.

Previously, the Chinese film series “Put your head on my shoulder” shown on Netflix provoked anger among Vietnamese netizens as it had a scene having the "nine-dash line" in its ninth episode.

The Department of Broadcasting, Television, and Electronic Information then sent a document to Netflix requesting it to comply with Vietnamese law as broadcasting television services in the country.

In May, Netflix also caused community backlash after the ancient town of Hoi An was dubbed as a Chinese landmark in the American series "Madam Secretary".

Last year, Hollywood animation "Abominable" was removed from Vietnamese cinemas after viewers spotted China’s "nine-dash line" violating Vietnamese sovereignty over its waters.

The "nine-dash line", claiming 90 percent of the 3.5-million-square-kilometer Bien Dong Sea, internationally known as the South China Sea, has met strong opposition from the international community.
