Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Thursday asserted that the state government and Assam have come to an agreement to resolve issues related to interstate boundary out of the court.

“Interstate boundary issue has been long pending.

“If everything goes well, in the next few months we may see some concrete results towards instilling peace permanently along our boundaries,” the CM said.

Earlier in the day, four opposition parties in Arunachal Pradesh, including the Congress, wrote to President Ram Nath Kovind seeking his intervention in resolving the boundary issues with Assam, after a recent controversy over Kimin area along the interstate border.

According to Khandu, both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have stressed an amicable solution to the boundary disputes between the two states.
