  • Anand Kumar replies: China and India have been discussing the unresolved boundary issue at the official level for a long while. From time to time Chinese officials, media and academics lay claim on Arunachal Pradesh, particularly Tawang. India needs to engage China to deepen the bilateral ties and minimize the potential for conflict. An outright military action is unlikely in the near future. In a positive development, the President paid a useful and constructive visit to China. The Chinese have supported northeast insurgents in the past but there are no confirmed reports of their continuing such support.
