India, China should resolve border disputes through bilateral talks: Roemer

      US Ambassador to India, Timothy Roemer, on Wednesday said that tension between India and China over border dispute is an internal issue of both the countries and emphasized that it should be resolved by the two neighbours through bilateral talks. Roemer said this while addressing the media at the American Centre in Kolkata during her maiden visit to West Bengal. Reacting to the exchange of conflicting statements between the two countiesin recent months, Roemer said: "The issue between China and India is a bilateral issue. And it's one that United States is confident will be resolved peacefully. Roemer also discussed about Pakistan's inaction against those responsible for the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and reiterated United States' stance to punish the perpetrators. "It's very important that Pakistan successfully prosecute the seven Mumbai attack suspects. They should continue to take the facts and the evidence on Hafiz Saeed and prosecute him. And that we continue to see is progress in dismantling the infrastructure of Lashkar-e-Taiba," Roemer said. Earlier on Monday, a Pakistani court had quashed two cases against Saeed, whom India accuses of masterminding last year's Mumbai terror attacks, but he remains under virtual house-arrest.
