China, India end border standoff   2013-05-06 23:46:00

  China and India have ended a standoff in their border area, the Chinese Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman said on Monday.

  "China and India have reached an agreement on resolving the incident in the western section of the border. The frontier forces of the two countries have terminated the standoff at the Tiannan River Valley area," Hua Chunying said in a statement.

  Since troops from the two sides began facing off in the western section of the China-India border last month, both sides have moved forward and adopted a constructive and cooperative attitude and calmed the tensions through border-related mechanisms, diplomatic channels and border defense meetings, she said.

  Hua said maintaining peace in the border areas works in the common interests of the two countries.

  According to the spokeswoman, China would like to work with India to reach a "fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable resolution to border issues" at the earliest possible date.
