China settles fair border demarcations, Pakistan

China settles fair border demarcations with Pakistan: Liu

BEIING, Sept 4 (APP): China has settled its "fair" and "reasonable" boundary demarcations with Pakistan and 11 other neighbouring countries. " We have so far signed border treaties or agreements wit 12 neighbouring countries, except India and Bhutan, settling 90 per cent its land boundaries, said spokesman of the Chinese Foreign Ministry's Department of Treaty and Law, Liu Zhenmin. With 14 neighbouring countries and a total of 22,000 kilometres of land boundaries, China is a country with the longest land borderlines and the largest number of neighbours in the world.

China has signed border treaties and agreements with Pakistan, Myanmar, Nepal, Mongolia and Afghanistan in 1960s and has resolved the boundary issues with Russia, the Laos, Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan since the 1990s. On the demarcation work with India, with which China shares 2,000-kilometre-long border, Liu said the border lines between the two countries were never demarcated officially in the past and the disputed areas were as large as 125,000 square kilometres. China and India began to discuss border issues since the 1980s. To maintain peace and stability at the border areas, the two countries signed two agreements in 1993 and 1996 respectively, Liu was quoted as saying by the state-run 'Oriental Outlook' magazine in its latest issue.
