The United States on Thursday said that it recognises Arunachal Pradesh as part of the Indian territory and strongly oppose China’s assertion on the territory.

“For nearly six decades, United States has recognized Arunachal Pradesh is Indian territory.

“And the disputed boundaries, all we can say is that we encourage India and China to use their existing bilateral channels to discuss those and not resort to military force,” the United States said.
