The resolution of the Sino Indian border issue needed to be addressed at a faster pace, as it was significant for stability, peace and prosperity of the region, Arunachal Pradesh governor gen (Retd) J J Singh said today.
At the same time, there were a whole lot of measures being taken by India to safeguard the territorial integrity and defend the country against aggression, the governor said.
Stating that the two countries might be competitors but not rivals, the governor said that both have a strategic and cooperative partnership in place and there was enough space for sustained economic and social development and trade for both.
"India and China are emerging powers seeking rightful place on the world," he said inaugurating a two-day seminar on India-China relation with the theme, 'Voice from the border: Indian’s response to the Chinese claim on Arunachal Pradesh' here.
He said the McMahon line should be taken as the international border as it was based on international law.
