"As far as China is concerned, both countries should sit together and discuss the issues," he said.

China Wednesday said India should not take any action that may complicate the situation in disputed border areas.

The remarks come in the wake of comments made Tuesday by India's Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju that there were plans to construct a 2,000-km-long road along the international border between Mago-Thingbu in Tawang district and Vijaynagar in Changlang district of Arunachal Pradesh.
