Senator Jeff Merkley said the resolution passed a parliamentary committee.

China is continuously intruding on the borders of India. Recently, China has occupied parts of India's Arunachal Pradesh. He says that these areas come under his country. While America is taking India's side. The Senate Committee of the US Parliament has passed a resolution recognizing Arunachal Pradesh as an integral part of India. Let me tell you, this proposal has been passed by the parliamentary committee within a month of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to America.

Four senators presented the proposal

The proposal was introduced Thursday by Senators Jeff Merkley, Bill Hagerty, Tim Kaine and Chris Van Hollen. The resolution states that the US recognizes the McMahon Line as the international boundary between China and India. The proposal will go to the Senate for a full vote.

Arunachal Pradesh integral part of India

Senator Jeff Merkley, Co-Chair of the Congressional-Executive Commission, said the US supports freedom and the rule of law around the world. The resolution makes it clear that the US considers Arunachal Pradesh as an integral part of India and not the People's Republic of China.

It is necessary to take action against China

At the same time, Hegerty said that at a time when China is posing serious threats to the free and open Indo-Pacific region. It is important for the US to stand shoulder to shoulder with its strategic partners in the region, especially India and other Quad countries. At the same time, it is necessary to take steps against China's comprehensive strategy of territorial expansion, which it has adopted in the South and East China Sea, the Himalayas and the South Pacific region.

America give strong support

Senator Cornyn said that there is increasing tension between India and China on their shared border. In such a situation, America should stand firmly in defense of democracy by supporting a free and open Indo-Pacific.

Chinese army is building a village on the border

Explain that America considers the McMahon Line as the international border between India and China. The Chinese army is trying to change the status quo on the border, for this the Chinese army is settling villages on the border. Along with this, a new map written in Chinese language has been released, in which Arunachal Pradesh has been described as a part of China. The bill talks about strengthening defense, technology, economic ties between India and America.
