'Talks With China In Progress Over Border Disputes'18 January 2010
New Delhi: With reports from Jammu and Kashmir indicating Chinese hold over Indian territory in Ladakh, Minister of State for Defence M M Pallam Raju today said India 'need not be alarmed' as talks were in progress to settle the border disputes. He also gave the benefit of doubt to China on reports of Chinese produced arms finding their way to militants in the North-Eastern states. 'As long as the border dispute is being worked on and debated between the two countries, we need not be alarmed about all these incidents, whether actual or reported,' Raju told reporters here. He said in the bilateral relationship one of the issues that needed to be sorted out was the difference in the perception of the borders and that is being worked on.
