Shillong, March 15: In a setback for China, the United States introduced a resolution in the Senate stating that Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India.
The resolution expressed “unequivocally recognizing the state of Arunachal Pradesh as an integral part of India”.
It stated that the US recognizes the McMahon Line as the international border between India and China in Arunachal Pradesh.
The resolution was introduced by Senator Bill Hagerty along with Senator Jeff Merkley. Hagerty said that at a time when China continues to pose grave and gathering threats to the free and open Indo-Pacific, it is critical for the US to stand “with our strategic partners in the region, especially India”.
Hagerty said, “This bipartisan resolution expresses the Senate’s support for unequivocally recognizing the state of Arunachal Pradesh as an integral part of India, condemning China’s military aggression to change the status quo along the Line of Actual Control, and further enhancing the US-India strategic partnership and the Quad in support of the Free and Open Indo-Pacific”.
