Indian states to resolve border row ‘amicably’
Two states in India's north-east have agreed to resolve their differences peacefully after their long-running border dispute erupted into deadly violence last week, reports AFP. Last Monday clashes on the demarcation between Assam and Mizoram left six police officers dead in a major embarrassment for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government. The two regions' chief ministers tweeted late Sunday that they would now seek an "amicable" approach to the dispute. Mizoram chief minister Zoramthanga urged locals to stop posting "sensitive messages" on social media while his Assam counterpart Himanta Biswa Sarma highlighted the "spirit of the north-east."
