Washington: The US has said that it supports peaceful and bilateral resolution of boundary dispute between India and China.

"We support India and China working together to settle their boundary disputes, and to do so bilaterally and peacefully," State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said at his daily news conference.

Ventrell was responding to a question on the US stand on the ongoing tension between India and China after the Chinese incursion inside the Indian territory in Ladakh region.

India asserts that the border dispute covered about 4000 km, while China claims that it is confined to about 2000 km to the area of Arunachal Pradesh, which it refers as Southern Tibet.
