Itanagar: The decades-old boundary dispute between Arunachal Pradesh and Assam would be resolved amicably soon with the one-man boundary commission constituted by Supreme Court working out modalities for the same, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said here on Saturday.

"The one-man committee headed by Justice Tarun Chaterjee is looking after the issue and he is scheduled to convene a meeting with the chief ministers of both the states on June," Chidambaram said during a press conference here.
