Differences with China can be sorted: Pranab
London: Amid China`s claims over parts of Arunachal Pradesh, India on Sunday said differences between New Delhi and Beijing over border issues can be resolved through dialogue.
"It is true that we have differences with China on border. But, we have agreed to resolve them through dialogue," Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters after G-20 meeting in Scotland.
Both Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Chinese counterpart Wen Jiabao had agreed to maintain peace and tranquillity on borders.
On October 24, Singh and Wen met on the margins of the ASEAN Summit in Thailand amid Chinese protests over Arunachal Pradesh and reached a consensus that the two neighbours should forge a strategic partnership.
India does not visualise any conflict on border issues with China, Mukherjee said, adding the bilateral trade between the two countries is expanding fast.
"We have institutional arrangements. There is Indo- China Joint Commission. They meet regularly... any dispute could be resolved," he said.
