WASHINGTON: India and China should work together to come up with “some better sort of arrangement” for peace, the US said on Wednesday, expressing concern over the standoff between their troops in the Sikkim sector.
“I know that the US is concerned about the ongoing situation there,” State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters at her daily news conference.
She was responding to questions on the standoff between Indian and Chinese troops in the Dokalam area.
“We believe that both parties, both sides should work together to try to come up with some better sort of arrangement for peace,” Nauert said. Earlier, a State Department official told PTI that the US encourages India and China to engage in a direct dialogue to reduce border tensions.
