Both Mizoram and Assam have decided to form committees to discuss and resolve border disputes between the two states.
It was decided in a meeting in New Delhi on Friday between Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and his Mizoram counterpart Zoramthanga.
Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, was also present at the meeting, which focused on ways to amicably resolve the border issues between the two Northeast states.
According to the official, the meeting also decided that the two Chief Ministers would meet from time to time to continue their efforts to bring the long-running border disputes along their 164.6-kilometer borders to a logical conclusion and a lasting solution.
“Heartening to share that, I along with HCM Mizoram Sri Zoramthanga met Hon HM Sri Amit Shah this evening in New Delhi,” Assam CM Sarma tweeted, thanking the Home Minister. We reaffirmed our commitment to keep our borders peaceful and tranquil.”
Prior to Friday’s meeting, the two Chief Ministers met for dinner on Thursday in New Delhi’s Assam Bhavan to discuss a variety of bilateral issues.
Three districts in southern Assam — Cachar, Hailakandi, and Karimganj — and three districts in northern Mizoram — Kolasib, Mamit, and Aizawl — share the inter-state border.
Following the violent clash on July 26, several incidents, including a few bomb explosions, occurred in the troubled border areas.
Following the July 26 violence, central forces have been stationed along the two states’ border areas, while Assam and Mizoram’s security forces have been deployed deep within their respective territories.
On July 26, the worst-ever violence along the Assam-Mizoram border killed six Assam Police officers and injured nearly 100 civilians and security personnel from both states.
