Guwahati: Assam and Mizoram agreed to form a regional committee to resolve the long pending boundary dispute.

 Taking forward the border talks between the two states, both Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his Mizoram counterpart Zoramthanga held a discussion at Assam House in New Delhi on Wednesday.

They reviewed the ongoing ministerial-level talks between the two states.

Earlier, an Assam government delegation led by border affairs minister Atul Bora held talks with Mizoram home minister Lalchamliana in Aizawl.

Following the discussion, Sarma told media, “It was a fruitful discussion and both the states have agreed to form regional committee to resolve the inter-state border issues.”

Along with border issues, both the chief ministers also discussed upon the rising incidents of smuggling of dried areca nuts, exotic animals and narcotics that come from across the borders of Myanmar.

“Both the people of #Assam and #Mizoram are hopeful for a quick resolution to this long standing issue.Every discussion brings us closer to the day we fully resolve it!,” tweeted Zoramthanga.

This was the second chief ministerial level meeting between the two states.

Last year in November, both the leaders met in New Delhi in the presence of union home minister Amit Shah and agreed to form committees involving all stakeholders to resolve the lingering border dispute through dialogue.

The next border dialogue meeting was likely to be held in Guwahati next month.
