Chief Secretaries of Assam, Mizoram to Meet Over Border Issues

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said the state was attempting for a friendly solution to “border disputes” with neighbouring states and noted that chief secretaries of Assam and Mizoram would hold a meeting in the national capital on July 9.

Mr Sarma said at a press conference as long as the dispute remains, there is a possibility of issues erupting, and it needs to be handled maturely.

“Unfortunately, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Mizoram have border disputes with Assam. As long as this dispute remains, some issues will keep on erupting on both sides. Thus, it needs mature handling. We have started the process of handling the issue. We are defending our borders very firmly at the same time talking to the other states for some friendly solution,” he said.

Assam and Mizoram have a long-pending dispute concerning their borders. The Chief Minister had said earlier that resolving border disputes among sister states was an essential objective of his government.
