In­dia on Thurs­day urged China to "scrupu­lously" re­spect the mu­tual un­der­stand­ing on bound­ary dis­putes and also to en­sure that each sides project the po­si­tion of other side "ac­cu­rately".

"….It is im­por­tant that th­ese un­der­stand­ings are scrupu­lously re­spected by both sides and that each side projects the po­si­tion of other side ac­cu­rately," the MEA spokesman Raveesh Ku­mar told re­porters here.

He was an­swer­ing a ques­tion on how would In­dia re­act to a re­cent state­ment by a spokesman of Chi­nese for­eign min­istry that a part of Sikkim state still re­mained dis­puted.

The MEA spokesman said the Govern­ment of In­dia is seized of the mat­ter and com­ments from the Chi­nese of­fi­cial. "Ne­go­ti­a­tions for the set­tle­ment of the In­dia-china bound­ary ques­tion are held at the level of the spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the two coun­tries. Based on the

un­der­stand­ing, th­ese meet­ings are held from time to time….the most re­cent com­mon un­der­stand­ing between the spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tives was reached in 2012," he said adding thus it is "im­por­tant" that th­ese un­der­stand­ings are "scrupu­lously" re­spected.
