India, China should jointly maintain peace and tranquility along their border: Chinese Ambassador Sun Weidong
Chinese Ambassador to India Sun Weidong has said that the two countries should jointly maintain peace and tranquility along their border before a final settlement on the issue is found. In an interview to a news agency, he said it is normal for neighbours to have differences which should be resolved through dialogue and consultation.
The Chinese envoy said, the two emerging Asian powers should not let the boundary dispute adversely impact the normal development of bilateral relations. Mr Sun called the India-China boundary question as a complex and sensitive issue left over from history. He said, over the past decades, not a single bullet has been fired at the China-India border area, and peace and tranquility has been maintained. Mr Sun said, boundary question is only one part of China-India relations and the two countries need to keep in mind the larger picture of the bilateral ties.
