Indian-US Congressman Dr. Ami Bera on Friday expressed concern about Chinese aggression along its border with India and asked Beijing to use diplomatic mechanisms instead of forcing it to resolve border problems with the neighboring country. .
His comments came amid a border clash between the Indian and Chinese military.
Both sides are involved in diplomatic and military talks amid mounting tension after violent clashes in the Galwan Valley on June 15. Twenty members of the Indian army were killed in the confrontation.
“I encourage China to use its long-standing diplomatic mechanisms with India to reduce the situation rather than forcing it to resolve boundary problems,” Dr. Bera, the oldest American Indian in the House of Representatives, said in a tweet. .
As chairman of the House of Representatives’ Subcommittee on Foreign Affairs for Asia, Dr. Bera said he is “concerned about China’s continuing aggression on its border” with India.
“While this is an issue between China and India, I think increasing the military forces on both sides of the Current Line of Control will be counterproductive and futile,” said Dr. Bera.
