NEW DELHI, September 18. /ITAR-TASS/. India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called on China to settle very soon border disputes along the Line of Actual Control that is a de facto border with China.Speaking at a joint news conference upon the talks with Chinese President XI Jinping who is here with a three-day state visit, Modi said: “We have to address the boundary question very soon,” and called for a clear determination of the Line of Actual Control.
China’s President Xi Jinping confirmed that China was set to solve the issue by diplomatic means.
"China-India border issue is a problem which has troubled both sides for long,” Xi said. “It should be resolved in the foreseeable future. China is determined to demarcate the border in a short span of time.”
Modi confirmed India’s stance on Tibet that, as he said, was part of China and assured Xi that he would not allow Tibetans to carry out any anti-China actions in India.
The two leaders also discussed key issues of economic collaboration.
China made public its intentions to invest $20 billion in India’s economy in the following five years, according to the Five Year Trade and Economic Development Plan that was signed during the visit of the Chinese president.
China is due to support India’s bid to join the Shanghai Co-operation Organization (SCO).
“China welcomes and supports India’s willingness to become a full-fledged member of the SCO,” Xi Jinping said.
At present, India has the status of an observer state at the SCO.
