The United States on Wednesday termed China's claim on Arunachal Pradesh as a bilateral issue with India and expressed confidence that the two countries would peacefully resolve the matter.

"The issue between India and China is a bilateral issue. The US is confident that they will peacefully resolve this issue," US Ambassador Timothy Roemer told reporters here.

Urges Pak to prosecute Saeed
Pointing out that the US shared India's concern over the Mumbai terror attacks just as India shared the US concern over the 9/11 attack in his country, Roemer said, “it is very important that Pakistan prosecutes successfully the seven suspects of the Mumbai attacks, take the facts and evidence about Hafiz Saeed and prosecute him."

Addressing a press conference before winding up his two-day visit here, Roemer said his country's relations with India was based on trust and a shared strategic interest and geopolitical concerns.
