GUWAHATI: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday said the state is determined to find a harmonious solution to clear the “border disputes” between Assam and Mizoram. Notably, a meeting will be held in the national capital, Delhi on July 9 by the chief secretaries of the two neighbouring states.

At a press conference, Assam CM mentioned that if the dispute persists to remain then there might be a possibility of “issues erupting” and that it needs “mature handling”.

He said, “Unfortunately, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram have border disputes with Assam. As long as this dispute remains, there will be some issues that 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 counter states for some amicable solution.”

Both the neighbouring states, Assam and Mizoram have long-pending and unfinished disagreements concerning their borders.

Prior to this, the significant goal of his government was to settle the border disputes among sister states, said Assam CM Sarma.
